(ABC 6 News) -- Monday the Albert Lea City Council moved ahead on a downtown development project.

They agreed to start working on a pre-development agreement with Kansas city-based Cohen-Esrey for the downtown Freeborn Bank and Jacobson buildings.

While nothing is final, developers said they would like to put apartments in the top three floors, and leave the ground floor for community space.
