BUZZA LOFTS MIGHT GET A SECOND PHASE
If you’ve always wanted to live at Buzza Lofts in Uptown but couldn’t snag yourself a unit, here’s your chance.
A second phase to the successful first phase is planned for what is currently a surface parking lot at 2915 Dupont Avenue (right next door to the first phase). The new building would stand six stories tall and include 135 market-rate apartments.
With the parking lot disappearing 268 new parking spaces would be located on two underground levels within the new building. The parking would be utilized by both residents of the new building and existing residents of the adjacent Buzza Lofts.
BKV Group is responsible for the design of the project which would be clad in “brick, painted lap siding, metal panel, wood and glass.” The overall exterior design takes architectural cues from the historic features of the adjacent Buzza building.
Walk-up units with patios will be located along 29th Street and each will have their own private outdoor space. Most units on the upper floors will have access to private balconies with the penthouse units on the sixth floor having access to large private terraces. Amenities within the building are all located on the first floor and include a fitness center, clubroom and a large outdoor deck complete with pool and entertaining space.
Dominium is developer behind the project and were responsible for development of the Buzza Lofts next door that opened in 2013 and include 136 affordable apartments. A major difference between the first and second phase is that the newest building will include market-rate apartments which means income restrictions will not apply.
This project will be presented at the City of Minneapolis Planning Commission’s February 11th meeting. If approved construction is anticipated to begin this year.
