Transforming a small footprint into a vibrant, amenity-rich multifamily high rise, Fourth and Park in Minneapolis, MN, is the final phase of Ryan’s Downtown East Development. The 25-story, 350-unit residential tower will complete the vision for the five-block development and is a partnership between Weidner Apartment Homes and Ryan Companies.
Fourth and Park will feature gateway-priced, efficient units with an average size of 790 SF, targeting professionals who work downtown. Connected to the downtown skyway system and located near the light rail, the project is surrounded by retail, restaurants, office space, The Commons Park and U.S. Bank Stadium. The modern exterior materials and large balconies will give a dominant presence to the corner of Fourth Street and Park Avenue, while the vertical glass on the west end of the tower will add visual character alongside the rich coloring of the precast panels. The industrial chic interior will feature concrete floors and exposed columns juxtaposed with finer finishes and fixtures.
Unique to the Minneapolis rental market, shared amenities for residents are featured on the rooftop to enjoy the nearly 360-degree view of the city, outdoor pool, grill stations, fire pits and two club rooms. Additionally, a large, sixth-level amenity deck will serve as a private, elevated park and a focal point for the tower. Indoor amenities include main-level commercial space and a dog run; second-level golf simulator, sports lounge and co-working space; and sixth-level gym. Residents will have a variety of options for parking including 105 parking stalls inside the building and private or public spaces in the parking garage.
Working through tight entitlement deadlines, design customizations and Covid-19 challenges, we strengthened our ongoing relationship with Weidner through open communication, a detailed understanding of the site and our ability to stick to the schedule.
