Minneapolis, Minn. — Mixed-use housing sits in the heart of campus along light rail line connecting twin cities.
Minneapolis, Minn. — The Opus Group will break ground this month on the Station on Washington, a mix of retail and residential on the East Bank Campus of the University of Minnesota. Five stories of purpose-built student housing will sit atop 11,172 square feet of ground-level retail. The project will contain 97 units with 156 beds and offer a variety of room choices from studios to one-and two-bedroom units.
The new Central Corridor Light Rail connecting downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul will pass in front of the project, along Washington Avenue, providing easy-access for students.
Amenities will include private underground parking, a large fitness center, a separate study lounge space and on-site retail options. It will be ready for occupancy in August 2013.
The Architect is Opus AE Group, Inc. in collaboration with Elness Swenson Graham Architects Inc.
