This new-construction workforce housing project is situated in a prominent location at the north end of Minneapolis and acts as part of a new ‘gateway’ into the city. The building has 40 efficiency and one-bedroom apartments on two stories over one story of 6 two-bedroom units with private entrances and live/work space. Amenities include a large, open community room, support staff offices, patios and green space for tenants. Green space on the tight, triangular site was maximized by locating all of the parking underground. Extensive remediation of this brownfield site and construction of the new building transformed this formerly blighted site into a neighborhood amenity.
