Facts

  • A circa-1908 annex to the old East High School, the city's first high school, was also demolished to make way for this development.
  • Demolition of the shopping center on site began in September 2005.
  • Lunds Market opened on November 2, 2006.
  • This development replaces the one-level Eastgate Shopping Center, and the first floor contains a Lunds Market, a full-service grocery store.
  • Nine levels of owner-occupied condominiums rise above. This is the first major all-glass residential building in Minneapolis.
  • Local neighborhood groups and the Minneapolis Planning Commission permitted a 110 ft building to the main roof, exclusive of the mechanical and elevator overrun at the building's rear, next to the parking lot.
  • The 10-story wing along University Avenue is connected to the 7-story wing along Central Avenue by enclosed glass bridges at every level.
  • The building was constructed of precast and prestressed structural concrete. The largest trusses were 59 feet long and weighed 68,000 pounds (30,844 kg).
  • The underground residential parking is accessible via a ramp descending from 4th Street SE.
  • This building was the first high-rise construction across the Mississippi River from downtown Minneapolis since the completion of La Rive Condominiums in 1987.
