A trio of local developers have a third project in the works for Northeast’s Sheridan neighborhood.

Solhem and Perkins | Levins are currently planning a four and a half story building on what is today three sites located at 306, 310, 314 and 318 13th Avenue NE. The new building would include 108 market-rate apartments along with one at grade and one underground story of parking featuring 102 parking stalls and 120 bike racks. Some of the parking stalls within the building would be reserved for existing commercial businesses surrounding the property.

The ground floor of the building would include the lobby, three live/work commercial units, bike storage and 39 interior parking stalls. The lower level of the building would include an additional 63 stalls of parking along with more bike storage. Floors two through five would be home to residential units that would vary in size including alcoves, one-bedroom, one-bedroom + den, and two-bedroom units. 

Amenities within featured within the project are a fifth-floor rooftop patio, along with commons areas on the ground floor. Multiple units within the building would have private balconies and eight of the units located on the fifth floor would have private walk out patios.  

The developers are interested in constructing the project on the four sites due to their proximity to a high trafficked transit corridor and a thriving neighborhood.

THE DESIGN

Momentum Design Group is responsible for the design of the building which pays close attention to the surrounding 1920’s commercial buildings within the neighborhood. Multiple buildings surrounding the site were taken into consideration when planning the cladding of the new building including the type of brick used, the storefront patterns and the unique elemental details found on the facades.

The building is planned to be clad in cement lap siding, cement panels, metal panels, brick and burnished CMU. The ground floor would also include an art mural on a wall adjacent to the apartment lobby entrance.  

While the new building would stand significantly taller in height than the adjacent buildings, the structure is planned to have a steeped façade along 13th Avenue NE that would allow for a better transition. The new building’s fifth floor would be set back in order to tuck it away from street view and the south side of the building would also step down to four stories in order to better connect with the residential properties behind the building.

A BRIEF HISTORY

This isn’t Solhem and Perkins | Levin’s first project planned for the Northeast neighborhood. Just two blocks away they have proposed two additional residential buildings that would bring nearly 300 residential units to the neighborhood (you can read more about those projects here).

Still in Northeast, but located closer to Downtown along Central Avenue, Solhem is currently developing another residential project called “Gibson” with a different developer, TE Miller Development. When that project is complete it will include 159 apartments on what formerly was the site of an auto dealership. Across the river both developers are also currently constructing “OxOp”, a mixed-use building located along Washington Avenue in the Mill District that will include 153 apartments and a ground floor art gallery. Last but not least, both developers are also currently constructing a project in the North Loop called “The Archive.” It’ll be home to 198 apartments, ground floor commercial space and three levels of underground parking. All three projects are anticipated to be complete in 2020.

Plans for the 13th Avenue Apartments were presented to the Minneapolis Planning Commission Committee of the Whole last Thursday, August 22nd for feedback. Plans are expected to go before the Minneapolis Planning Commission for approval later this Fall.

Solhem and Perkins | Levin hope to begin construction on the 13th Avenue NE Apartments this Winter with work anticipated to be complete in Fall 2021.

 

TWO PROJECTS PLAN TO BRING NEARLY 300 APARTMENTS TO NORTHEAST

Nearly 300 apartments are planned for two sites located adjacent to Broadway Street NE in Northeast Minneapolis.

Solhem and Perkins | Levin have released plans for two residential projects that would be constructed on neighboring sites located where NE Main Street ALMOST meets Broadway Street NE (you know what we mean if you’ve been in the area).

Solhem is no stranger to the neighborhood as earlier this year they completed The Julia, a new residential building located just one block down the road.

The area near the intersection of Broadway Street NE and Marshall Street NE is becoming a hot bed for developers. In the last few years a number of projects have gone up including The Grain Belt Apartments, Mezzo, The Julia, Wyndris and currently under construction, N&E. That’s just the start of it too. If plans come to fruition, another couple of hundred apartment units could pop up on sites located behind the historic Grain Belt Brewery building.

So, what exactly does Solhem and Perkins | Levin have in mind for their two sites? Feast your eyes upon the renderings below. 

1011 NE MAIN STREET

The first project is proposed for a 1.04 acre site located at 1011-1027 NE Main Street.

The five-story building would replace five single family homes and would include 175 apartments. The apartments within the building would range in size and include alcove, one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den and two-bedroom units. Two walk-up units would also be included in the project located along NE Main Street. 

Two levels of underground parking with space for 113 vehicles and 230 bikes would be provided within the building. Access to the garage would be provided by two curb cuts, one located along NE Main Street leading to the lower garage and the other located along NE 2nd Street leading to the upper garage.

Amenities with the building would include two common space areas on the ground floor, one of which most likely will be a fitness center.

The design of the building takes into account the surrounding neighborhood. The south side of the building where the building will front single and multifamily residences was brought down in height in order to provide a transition zone. As the building approaches Broadway Street NE, the building rises to five stories in height in order to engage with the other buildings of similar height along the corridor.

Plans for 1011 NE Main Street can be found here.

Construction on 1011 NE Main Street is expected to begin in Fall 2019 with an anticipated completion in Summer 2021.

Solhem and Perkins | Levin will present their project for feedback to the Minneapolis Planning Commission Committee of the Whole next week on Thursday, June 27th at 4:30pm.

1018 NE MAIN STREET

The second project planned by Solhem and Perkins | Levin is located at 1018-1024 NE Main Street. 

The five-story project would replace 3 single and multifamily residences. In total there would be 113 apartment units along space for 68 vehicles and 150 bikes in one level of underground parking. Units within the building would range in size and include alcove, one bedroom, one-bedroom + den and two-bedroom units.

All of the ground floor units within the project will be walk-up units with the entrance to the building being located at the corner of NE Main Street and 11th Avenue NE.. The lobby was intentionally located towards Broadway as the area is more active which allowed for the quieter residential units to be located to the south of the building in order to be mindful to the adjacent residential buildings.

A large 3,079 square foot common space is shown on the ground floor of the building, the space likely would be home to the majority of amenity spaces within the project. Plans also show a 1,700 square foot roof deck.

The design of the building features two intersecting volumes, one modern and five stories in height and the other traditional and four stories in height. The four-story portion will be located on the south end of the project and will be clad in brick in order to help assist with the transition of the larger building to the single-family dwellings located to the south. The five-story portion of the building will have a modern angled design that will help better connect it with the Broadway Street NE corridor.

Plans for 1018 NE Main Street can be found here.

Construction on 1018 NE Main Street is expected to begin in Fall 2019 with an anticipated completion date in Spring 2021.

Solhem and Perkins | Levin will present their project for feedback to the Minneapolis Planning Commission Committee of the Whole next week on Thursday, June 27th at 4:30pm.

 
THREE RESIDENTIAL PROJECTS PROPOSED FOR GIRARD AVENUE S

A group of developers have set their sights on Girard Avenue South.

Developers Yellow Tree and Perkins and Levin are proposing three new residential developments along the road stretching from W 27th Street to W 32nd Street. In total, the three proposals would bring 271 new apartments to the Uptown neighborhood.

 So, what exactly is being proposed?

2701 GIRARD AVENUE S

The first project is a six-story residential building proposed for the southeast corner of Girard Avenue South and West 27th Street (that’s just down the block from Giordano’s). Four existing buildings would be demolished in order to make way for the new building.

119 apartments would be included on the project which likely would range in size from studios to two-bedroom units. Residents would have access to 74 parking spaces that would be located on one at grade level and one below grade level.

The exterior of the project would be clade in brick, burnished block and three colors of metal panel. 

The project was designed by DJR Architecture and would be co-developed by Yellow Tree and Perkins and Levin. An anticipated construction start date for this project would most likely occur in 2020.

Plans for 2701 Girard Avenue S can be found here.

 

2832 GIRARD AVENUE S

The next proposal is located on a site just north of the parking lot of Piggy Bank, a restaurant located in the Uptown neighborhood.

The project site would require the combination of three properties that each currently are each home to single-family dwellings. All three would be demolished in order to make way for a new six-story building that would include 76 apartments.

The exterior of the project would be clad in a brick base with the upper floors being clad in metals of various colors. Composite wood accents would also be found throughout the façade. In addition, the developer is also proposing a green wall facing south towards the alley.

The project was designed by DJR Architecture and would be co-developed by Yellow Tree and Perkins and Levin. An anticipated construction start date for this project would most likely occur in 2020.

Plans for 2832 Girard Avenue S can be found here.

 

3224 GIRARD AVENUE S

 The final proposal for Yellow Tree’s Girard Street trifecta is for 3224 Girard Avenue S.

This project would be located between W 32nd and W 33rd Streets on the west site of Girard Avenue S. It would require the demolition of 3 single family residences along with one multifamily residence.

 A new four-story building would be constructed on the site that would include 76 apartments. Apartment sizes would include studios, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units. The ground floor of the building would include the residential lobby along with a fitness center, bike storage room and three 1-bedroom walk up units. 

Residents would have access to 38 enclosed surface parking spaces within the building.

The project was designed by DJR Architecture and would be co-developed by Yellow Tree and Perkins and Levin. An anticipated construction start date for this project would most likely occur in 2020.
