Design Statement:
An old Jaguar car dealership in downtown Minneapolis is getting a long-awaited new life. The 2.4-acre block will soon house a six-story, 580,000 sq ft, mixed-use project. The development will contain 286 luxury apartments anchored by a 40,000 sq ft Whole Foods Market. The project will offer luxury apartments featuring dramatic views of the downtown skyline and Mississippi River. The design balances the housing needs of sophisticated, discerning apartment residents with the commercial needs of the top-tier urban grocery store. Project amenities will include a fourth-floor terrace with an outdoor pool, bocce ball area, fire pit, dog walk, enclosed party room, cyber cafe and state-of-the-art fitness center. The construction will prioritize sustainable building practices by incorporating an existing 300-stall parking structure, effectively wrapping the new project around the existing improvement and re-using them.
