Jefferson Street NE

118 AFFORDABLE APARTMENTS COMING TO HOLLAND NEIGHBORHOOD

118 affordable apartments will be complete in just a few months in the Holland neighborhood.

Hook & Ladder Apartments is currently under construction at 2320 Jefferson Street NE. That’s just down the block from the planned market-rate apartment project that we reported on earlier this week (you can read about that project here). When Hook & Ladder is complete later this Fall the project will include two residential buildings, one standing five stories tall and the other three stories. 

Residents who live at Hook & Ladder will need to meet the requirement that their household income is 60% of the area median income or below.

Units within the buildings will range in size and include one, two and three-bedroom layouts.  

One unique aspect of the project is that the taller building has been designed in a way that is consistent with Green Communities requirements (think water saving fixtures, green materials, etc) while the shorter building has been designed to comply with Passive House Certification.

What is Passive House Certification exactly? Buildings that meet the requirements are designed so that they are ultra-tight and high insulated. In the end this ensures that the building consumes less energy for heating and cooling while also improving the overall air quality. 

Residents of the two buildings will have access to shared amenities including a courtyard spanning between the two buildings, an outdoor children’s play area, a dog run and garden plots. Amenities within the three-story building will include a large community room, a fitness center, a library and business center. The five-story building will have a ground floor bike storage room and will also have access to the amenities within the three-story building.

118 parking spaces are included within the entire project. 59 are located on one underground level beneath the three-story building while there are 15 covered and 44 uncovered spots located on a surface parking lot that is accessible off Jefferson Avenue.  

Hook & Ladder Apartments is being developed by Newport Midwest and The Landon Group. The building was designed by LHB Corp and Wenck Associates.

A vacant site in the Holland neighborhood will soon be home to a new residential building. 

TE Miller Development is currently planning a 112-unit multifamily building at 2201 Jefferson Street NE. The building when complete will stand four stories tall and include 119 indoor parking spaces on one and a half levels of underground parking and residential units on levels one through four.

All units within the new building will be market-rate. Units will vary in size and include studios, micro one-bedroom, one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den, micro two-bedroom and two-bedroom units. On the Western side of the building there will be 10 walk-up units while on the Eastern side there will be 10 units with ground floor walk-out patios that lead to an outdoor amenity area.

The ground floor outdoor amenity area that we just referred to will feature a fire pit and lounge space, multiple grilling spaces, space for yard games and a dog run. Indoors on the ground floor there will be a large lobby with a fire place and lounge space, a fitness center with yoga room, a pub room and a bike repair/work room. On the fifth floor of the project there won’t actually be any units, just an outdoor roof deck with fire pit, grilling area, outdoor movie screen and those gorgeous views of Downtown Minneapolis.

Tushie Montgomery Architects is responsible for the design of the 2201 Jefferson. When it comes to the footprint of the building it was made sure that it was set back on the Eastern side of the site in order to minimize shadowing on the adjacent residential homes. The South side of the building is where the main entrance will be located, it’s also the side of the building where that fifth-floor rooftop deck we just mentioned will be located. The developers have also carved out space on the Southwest corner to accommodate the 22nd Street connection to J-ROW.

We haven’t really mentioned what J-ROW is yet on The Development Tracker so let us fill you in. When complete, J-ROW will be an interactive bike path that will feature rotating local art sculptures on three different pads along with tons of luscious landscaping. It’ll connect to the adjacent (and under construction) Hook & Ladder Apartments and will be the perfect artistic addition to the thriving Northeast Arts District.

When it comes to the physical construction of the building it will include two below grade and one above grade level of concrete while the upper three stories of the project being constructed from wood framing. The exterior of the building will be clad in brick, glass, metal panel and fiber cement siding.

Plans for 2201 Jefferson Street NE were approved by the Minneapolis Planning Commission in August. Construction is expected to begin in December 2019 and be complete in Spring 2021.
