United Properties breaks ground on 385,000-square-foot mixed-use development in Minneapolis


North Loop

Located at 729 Washington Ave. North, the 10-story building will be home to office, residential and retail tenants by January of 2019. This will be United Properties’ fifth North Loop project, and is the largest project yet to be undertaken by the company in the North Loop.

The Nordic-inspired, modern warehouse-style building is designed to be the living room and backyard of the North Loop. In addition to office space, the development will contain 57 apartments, an underground and seven-level elevated parking garage with more than 400 spaces and ground-level retail. Outside, The Nordic will feature an active public plaza fronting Washington Avenue, intended for outdoor seating, lawn games, winter ice curling and space for food truck service.

United adds apartments to proposed North Loop office building

North Loop

The latest plan for what is being referred to as the 729 Washington Avenue North development — it’s mid-block between 7th Avenue and 8th Avenue — calls for an office building that faces Washington Avenue and a residential and parking garage building that fronts 3rd Street N. That public plaza is being pitched as a public space that would provide access to connecting paths.
