  • The hotel is part of Starwood's Luxury Collection as one of Minneapolis' finest properties.
  • On two separate occasions, the Minneapolis City Council voted to extend the developer's timeline for receiving financing.
  • The towers include 92 condominium units and 136 hotel rooms.
  • All units come with one parking spot, and valet service is provided.
  • The redevelopment included construction of a new skyway connection to the west across 2nd Avenue to the Marquette Parking Ramp.
  • The main section north of the existing Ivy Tower is built on a 5.5 ft (1.68 m) mat foundation, while the section to the east is supported by caissons.
  • This is the first residential-hotel combination in the Twin Cities. Ivy residents have full access to the amenities provided to hotel guests.
  • The developers received $8.4 million in tax increment financing (TIF) funding.
  • Marketing of the condominium units began in late September 2004.
  • The Hotel Ivy + Residence wraps around and incorporates the historic Ivy Tower, previously threatened with demolition.
  • In response to the high water table issues, the developer moved 1 floor overground and the tower grew from 286 to 302 feet. The Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Commission approved this change in June 2006.
  • Originally planned to rise over 6 levels of underground parking, the developers discovered that the water table was higher than anticipated during initial excavation.
  • This is the tallest building completed in Minnesota during 2008.
  • The Hotel Ivy opened for business on 21 February 2008, even though the exterior was not completed until July 2008.
