This unique residential project is located in the Historic Warehouse District on the edge of downtown Minneapolis, in the popular North Loop Neighborhood. The project needed to contextually address the massing and materiality of this neighborhood but also stand out as a new modern facility to attract tenants in an extremely aggressive rental market. The 50 unit residential apartment building with a blend of studio, 1 bedroom, 1+ bedroom, and 2 bedroom units, has mixed use commercial spaces available at street level, and a conditioned 50 stall underground parking garage.
We worked closely with the developer to identify important amenities for residents within the project’s historic and urban context. Amenities include vegetable gardens, bike cleaning and work stations, a pet cleaning room, a fitness center, and a shared public lounge space. This is all supported with a richly landscaped site and courtyard, linking the project to the vibrant, urban, historic neighborhood.
