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.
