Mortenson returns with plans for 26-story apt tower


The applicant is proposing a 26-story, mixed use building with 4,930 square feet of ground floor commercial space fronting along Hennepin Avenue E, 1,618 square feet of retail space along 4th Street NE and 282 dwelling units.

The site is approximately 32,004 square feet in area (0.75 acres).  There are 282 parking stalls proposed within an above-grade parking structure that is incorporated into the building.  The building is designed with a three-story base that includes retail, residential units and parking and a 23-story tower, for a total of 26 stories.

The tower portion is situated on the northeast side of the site, stepping back 20 feet from the building wall along Hennepin Avenue E.  The first floor of the building includes retail along Hennepin Avenue E and 4th Street NE, amenity space and parking.  The residential lobby is intended to flow from the retail space as one large open area.  The main residential and commercial entrance is located at the corner of Hennepin Avenue E and 4th Street NE.

The entrance is recessed approximately 4.5 feet from the front property lines along Hennepin Avenue and 4th Street NE.  The remainder of the 4th Street NE frontage will include the residential lobby, elevators, a retail space and parking.

The parking structure will be screened from Hennepin Avenue E with residential units on all floors and screened on the first floor along 4th Street NE with a retail space. The exposed portions of the parking structure will be screened with a metal panel and artistic elements. Additional residential amenity space is provided on the seventh floor.
