Mixed-use Opportunity Zone re-development in North Minneapolis

The Largest Modular Development in the City

Glenwood Apartments is a mixed-use Opportunity Zone redevelopment featuring 127 apartments and community retail/commercial space. Located in the heart of Minneapolis’ Harrison neighborhood, Glenwood Apartments will offer both market-rate and workforce housing with 65 units (51%) available to those at 80 percent area median income and ten units (8%) available to those at a 60 percent area median income. The benefits and efficiencies of volumetric modular and RISE’s partnership with Enterprise Community Partners made this great diversity of units possible.

Glenwood Apartments will be a seven-story structure with five stories of RISE-manufactured modules over a two-story concrete podium and affordably powered by solar panels. Units will include studio, alcove, and one- and two-bedroom options. The street level will be activated with lofted townhome units along Fremont Avenue and community retail/commercial space along Glenwood Avenue. The entrance will welcome residents at the street corner, with all uses wrapping around two stories of enclosed parking. Additional amenities will include co-working and maker spaces, a seventh-floor clubroom and rooftop deck with skyline views, a fitness center, secure bike storage, a dog-washing station and outdoor green space. Glenwood Apartment's location is ideally adjacent to the Metro Transit bus stop and within two blocks of a future light rail station along the southwest extension of the Metro Transit’s Green Line.

“I appreciate this project coming into ward 5. We do need more affordable housing, but we also need more diversity of housing types in North Minneapolis and options for those transitioning out of low-income to stay in the neighborhood. We’re happy to have modular in our city. We think it can help us solve a lot of our house gaps. RISE is at the forefront, and they’re making it happen with this project.”

— City Councilmember Jeremiah Ellison (Ward 5)
