OPTIMIZING STRUCTURAL EFFICIENCY
NordHaus is the first phase of a mixed-use development on a full-block site in the heart of northeast Minneapolis. With 280 luxury rental units, the 20-story, 532,000-square-foot residential tower is cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete surrounded by precast podium parking. A wood-frame-over-podium structure also wraps around the tower. The project includes 22,000 square feet of retail, a restaurant, club rooms, and work from home suites. Additional amenities include a one-acre outdoor terrace, green roof and pool on Level 3; fitness areas, and integrated parking for 350 vehicles. At the conclusion of the initial concept design phase with a prior engineering team, MBJ was engaged to provide full structural engineering services.
