North Loop Apartments Project 1, Minneapolis, MN
The North Loop Project 1 building is 6-stories tall and includes first floor retail and five stories of residential apartments with two floors of underground parking. The 0.99 acre project site extends for a full city block and required significant coordination with the City relating to the reconstruction of the sidewalks and alley, along with an intersection curb extension at N 2nd Street and N 2nd Avenue. Élan worked closely with the project architect and landscape architect to integrate a central four-season plaza that provides ground level connectivity to the retail spaces, streets, alley and adjacent properties. The site was formerly occupied by a service station with leaking fuel tanks, requiring additional coordination with the environmental engineers and contractor for remediation of the contaminated soil.

333 Hennepin Residential Tower, Minneapolis, MN
333 Hennepin includes first floor retail, surface plaza, 282 residential units, and a 6-story parking ramp in a 26-story tower. Élan’s landscape architect worked closely with the project architect to create a vibrant outdoor plaza for the retail spaces while providing a cohesive ground floor plan to meet the building program at this 32,000 sf urban site. The design of the outdoor space also included site amenities at the street side including street trees, planters, and seating areas complete with charging stations. The primary engineering challenge included incorporating storm water management for this second phase of the redevelopment. Due to significant environmental contamination along with shallow bedrock the stormwater approach utilizes a filtration system located on the first floor of the covered parking area to meet the City requirements for reduction in total phosphorus and total suspended solids.
