Ryan Companies and Luigi Bernardi announce today that Eleven has sold over half of the residences in the 550-foot, 41-story tower that will be Minneapolis’ tallest residential building. In addition, Chicago-based Sudler Property Management has agreed to terms with the project team to offer resident owners a new-to-market level of customized services and amenities.
“We knew there was a severe lack of inventory in the luxury condo market in the Twin Cities area and the pace at which these homes have sold bears that out,” said John Wanninger of WMG Partners at Lakes Sotheby’s International Realty, which is selling homes at Eleven. “What has been extremely gratifying is that this project defies the norms of a typical winter project. December and January felt like a spring market, and we are very happy with our sales for the project overall.”
Sudler Property Management, Chicago’s premier property management firm, is known for providing concierge support at prominent residential addresses in Chicago including No. 9 Walton, Park Hyatt Residences, and the Palmolive Building.
“After searching nationwide, the team at Eleven is thrilled to announce Sudler as our partner to provide the residents of Eleven with all the benefits, experiences and amenities of a five-star hotel,” said Luigi Bernardi, CEO of Arcadia, LLC, and co-developer of Eleven. “Sudler’s vast resources in its management team, innovative technology and legendary reputation for service will provide the residents of Eleven with stellar 24/7 attention from the moment they enter the building.”
The Eleven team toured more than 30 projects in North America seeking the best-in-class for every facet of Eleven. Sudler Property Management stood out for its attention to detail. Eleven will be Sudler’s first property in Minnesota.
“Our Sudler team will provide the residents of Eleven with calm, attentive expertise, from the 24/7 greeting as they arrive in the building’s motor court, to concierge-level support for parcel and grocery delivery, to floral arrangements effortlessly refreshed daily and much more,” said Steven Levy, President of Sudler. “Eleven owner-residents can expect true service and everyday luxuries provided with Midwestern charm, hospitality, and care. Our goal is to establish ‘Sudler-managed’ as a mark of excellence in Minneapolis. We are proud to set that standard at Eleven.”
At Eleven, residents will enjoy a level of amenities above and beyond those offered elsewhere in Minneapolis. The building’s riverfront location, convenience to Gold Medal Park, music venues, theaters, and museums, is as unique as it is inviting. Situated near the Stone Arch Bridge, set back from the chaotic busyness of the urban center, Eleven’s resident owners will appreciate a green setting with stunning views of the city. Eleven will foster a true sense of community among its owners.
“Eleven’s design is magnificent and unparalleled in the marketplace,” said Bernardi. “As a future resident of Eleven, I am looking forward to raising the bar on the standard of living and personal service for each homeowner; and Sudler provides a critical part of delivering that experience.”
The 550-foot, 41-story Eleven tower will be Minneapolis’ tallest residential building and first designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA), based in New York City. Luigi Bernardi of Arcadia LLC is serving as the project sponsor and co-developer and Ryan Companies is serving as co-developer, builder, and is partnering with RAMSA as the architect. RAMSA, Ryan, and local firms Peterssen/Keller Architects, Martha Dayton Design and Lakes Sotheby’s International Realty have ensured the building interior is as thoughtful as its exterior. Amenities include a large landscaped terrace that will be unlike any other in the city including a 25-yard lap pool, a private motor court, a 24/7 doorman, an expansive fitness suite, a multi-sport court, a library, a golf simulator, a children’s splash pad, retail space (ideally for a restaurant), a demonstration kitchen with dining, residential and guest parking, storage, and more.
