WORKFORCE HOUSING PROPOSED FOR SITE ALONG HIAWATHA AVENUE


A five-story mixed-use building has been proposed along Hiawatha Avenue.

Located at 4525 Hiawatha Avenue, β€œAmber Apartments” would be constructed on what today is a site that is home to a single-story industrial building. The location of Amber Apartments was intentionally selected as it not only is adjacent to the Blue Line that connects Downtown Minneapolis to the Mall of America but is also in an area with a number of neighborhood amenities.

Plans for the five-story building include 81 units of workforce housing for low income residents along with a community room, computer lab, laundry room, and 2,500 square feet of ground floor office and support space. Amenity spaces within the building would be used by not only residents of the building but also by the neighborhood.

An outdoor patio would be located behind the building and would include seating and amenity spaces for residents. 25 parking spaces would be provided on a surface parking lot that would be located behind the building and accessed from E 45th Street. 44 spaces for bikes would be provided on site with four being located outside of the building and 40 within an indoor bike room.

Amber Apartments was designed by LHB Corp and would be developed by RS Eden. At the moment a General Contractor has yet to be selected.

Plans for the project will go before the Minneapolis Planning Commission Committee of the Whole for feedback tomorrow, May 14th, at 4:30pm.
