Situated in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, the 270 Hennepin Avenue Tower is a new 22-story, 340-unit mixed-use residential tower with 2 levels of underground parking. With its brick and glass cladding, the new tower architecturally links the all-glass buildings of downtown Minneapolis with the historic Warehouse District’s brick structures. Approximately 260,000 square feet of residential units comprise more than half of the tower’s 480,000 gross square feet, with 20,000 square feet of lobby and retail space on the first floor, and additional parking integrated at levels 2 and 3 totaling 330 stalls. More than 650 bike storage units located adjacent to parking stalls encourage a clean transportation option for downtown living. Level 19 features an indoor swimming pool, outdoor terrace with spa, and other amenities including fitness and yoga rooms. The primary structural system for the project is cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete with cast-in-place concrete shear walls for resisting lateral forces. Foundations are spread footings bearing on limestone bedrock.
