It was bound to happen eventually, but you would hope that it could stay in it's natural condition. I bet there are many that would buy the homesites just because he used to own it. They gotta keep those gates and ironwork, though!

It has to be hard for the long time residents used the "wilderness-like" enviroment. I wonder what each lot will sell for?

Report said the gate house and gate will remain.

I was told years ago that Prince planned to turn that area into an actual "Paisley Park", similar to Strawberry Fields. It would be nice to see that come to pass somewhere. From what I was told, it was something he was excited about.

I've been SCREAMING at the State of Minnesota to take the land in swap for the estate taxes they'll receive. Instead of money they'll waste, they could have a lasting State Park. But no one listens.

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

I get these properties mixed up in Minnie. There's another "gate" property?

I would think they are in a bind, I did read in the court papers that at least for February, 2019 they had to pay the mortgage on the T&C property I'm sure it's maintenance and upkeep are costing a bit.

It's not like his family were heavily involved in whatever it was he wanted to do so I wouldn't expect much in the direction of what he wanted to do with it. I'm sure overall there's a push and pull over more housing developments but most cities are growing at crazy rates these days, housing is an issue.

lol Prince probably felt that way when they started builing all those housing editions around him. I don't feel sorry for those residents that live there now who don't want all the extra everything.

I agree. It was sad though. She revealed that she and Prince had planned and built the house on Galpin in '86. He tore that home down in 2006, so it was just open and unused land for many years. Too bad he didn't arrange for it to be protected Park space before he passed.

I'm sure that's why he bought 200 acres: so he couldn't hear or see his neighbors - and they couldn't hear or see him.

Chanhassen City Council approves housing and park plan on former Prince property: Chanhassen City Council gave nod to proposal for homes and parkland.

.

A long-running dispute over development of land once owned by Prince appears to be settled. The Chanhassen City Council voted 5-0 Monday for a plan that includes 169 lots for market-rate and luxury houses on the 188-acre site, between Galpin Boulevard and the shore of lakes Ann and Lucy. The plan also sets aside 57 acres as undeveloped woods and wetlands along the lakes, said City Manager Todd Gerhardt.

The last paragraph of that article is the best.

In agreeing to sell the property, Prince’s heirs requested that the development not be associated with the late megastar.


In other words, it will not be called "Paisley Acres."
