Buildings including the former location of a mattress shop will be torn down at 2212, 2316 and 2320 Jefferson St. NE in Minneapolis to make room for the planned Hook & Ladder apartments.
The Landon Group and a California developer want to build a “green” workforce apartment complex in a part of northeast Minneapolis that is getting increasing interest from developers.
The Minneapolis City Council on Friday approved the Hook & Ladder project and rezoning for a 2.6-acre site at 2212, 2316 and 2320 Jefferson St. NE. St. Paul-based Landon and Irvine, California-based Newport Properties plan a two-building, 118-unit complex that will rent to households earning 60 percent of the area median income or below.
Hook & Ladder is also a demonstration project, said Becky Landon, CEO of the Landon Group. A three-story, wood-frame building will be built to current Green Communities standards, while a second, five-story wood-frame building will be built to energy-efficient “passive house” standards. Landon claims the five-story building will be the first such passive apartment project in Minnesota.
