A "press event" is reportedly in the planning stages right now, set to happen some time in the first week of September. Since June of last year, Bank of America has donated 19 properties to the City of Minneapolis through the Twin Cities Community Land Bank. In July, they donated their 20th home which will be rehabilitated by the Greater Metropolitan Housing Corporation (GMHC) to be a specially outfitted home for a disabled veteran.

That home is located at 39 NE 16th Ave. 

While the exact day of the press event has not been announced yet, it is likely that City Council President Barb Johnson will speak at the event. The house is in Diane Hofstede's ward and Hofstede will likely be at the event, too.
