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.

 
HOME2 SUITES BY HILTON IN THE WORKS FOR PROSPECT PARK

A new extended stay hotel is planned for the Prospect Park neighborhood.

Developer Jeff Barnhart of Prospect Park Properties is planning on building a six-story, 112 room Home2 Suites by Hilton hotel at 2800 University Avenue. The site is currently home to a two-story office building that was built in the early 1980’s along with a surface parking lot.

THE BRAND 

Never heard of Home2 Suites by Hilton? We’ll fill you in.

The Home2 Suites by Hilton brand is made up of affordable and contemporary all-suite extended hotels. The hotels feature a large 4,200 square foot lobby called “The Oasis” that feature communal and individual work zones, a market, a fitness area, wireless printing and complimentary Wi-Fi.

The main competitors to the brand are TownePlace Suites by Marriott and Candlewood Suites Hotels by ING.

The first Home2 Suites by Hilton opened in in 2009 and today there are over 300 locations spread across the United States and Canada. Currently in Minnesota there are five Home2 Suites by Hilton locations with the most recent having opened in Brooklyn Park. Another location is currently under construction in Downtown Minneapolis that will be dual branded with a Tru by Hilton hotel. 

THE SITE

Now, if you’re familiar with the site you might have already realized that the proposed Home2 Suites would be directly next door to a Hampton Inn and Suites by Hilton that was constructed a few years ago. That project was developed by the same developer and there are plans to actually connect the two hotels once construction on the Home2 Suites is complete

101 parking spaces on one underground level and one surface level are also planned as a part of the project. The parking would be shared by both hotels. 

Tushie Montgomery Architects is responsible for the design of the hotel which will be clad in stucco, brick and metal panels. The building will feature the latest Home2 Suites prototype design which includes their signature glowing rooftop beacon.

THE DEVELOPER

Prospect Park Properties has been quite the active developer in the neighborhood.

As mentioned above they completed the Hampton Inn & Suites next door and a few years back they also completed The Link, a large mixed-use development down the block that includes apartments, retail space and a Fresh Thyme grocery store. They’re currently also developing The Pillars of Prospect Park, a senior living building located next to The Link. Last but not least, last month they also completed work on a residential building just a few blocks away called the Green on Fourth.

Plans for Home2 Suites by Hilton in Prospect Park have already been presented to the Minneapolis Planning Commission Committee of the Whole at their July 25th meeting. Plans are expected to be filed with the City of Minneapolis Planning Commission for approval in the coming weeks.

 
MIXED-USE PROJECT PLANNED FOR HISTORIC WAREHOUSE DISTRICT

A small site in the historic Warehouse District may soon become home to a new mixed-use building. 

“310 Lofts” is proposed for a site at 310 N 2nd Street. The angular site is located directly behind two historic buildings that Paster Properties renovated and restored last year that include retail and office space and is home to Fairgrounds Coffee & Tea.

In order to construct the new mixed-use building a historic building dating back to 1883 that is currently being used as a warehouse would need to be demolished. In its place plans show a new six story building that would be constructed. The building would include 59 residential units and 1,369 square feet of commercial space.

The building would be a mix of unit sizes including studios, one bedroom, one-bedroom + den and two-bedroom units. Four indoor parking levels, including one at grade and three underground, would provide 124 parking stalls for residents.

While the building is technically six stories above ground, it’ll span a total of ten stories which includes the underground parking levels and the roof deck. That’s actually the maximum number of floors allowed for a new building within the historic Warehouse District.

Tushie Montgomery Architects is responsible for the design of the project. It’ll feature a modern look that includes large balconies, expansive windows and a good amount of brick. That brick will help tie the design of building, even if modern, in with the surrounding historic structures. The developers of the project are listed as 310 Development LLC.

Plans for 310 Lofts will be presented for feedback to the Historical Preservation Committee at their February 19th meeting.
