Tuesday, October 23, 2018
Project to be completed in summer of 2019; now accepting housing reservations
Minneapolis – (October 2, 2018) – Oppidan Investment Company, a national property development firm headquartered in Excelsior, Minn., today announced the name and additional details of its mixed-use development at the corner of 46th and Hiawatha. Its new name – Lowa46 – is a blend of Longfellow and Hiawatha, a nod to the two Minneapolis communities this development will serve the most.
Lowa46 is a transit-orientated, mixed-use development that includes 148 market-rate one- and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses, a 45,000 SF first-of-its-kind urban Cub Foods grocery store, 3,000 SF of small-shop retail, and a large public plaza.
Lowa46 is ideally located between Longfellow and the Mississippi, located next to the Blue Line light rail and serves as the “pilot” phase of the MN hi-line, a pedestrian path and linear part that will provide connectivity from Minnehaha Park all the way to the Midtown Greenway.
Greco, the residential leasing agent and manager is now accepting reservations for Lowa46.
Additional amenities include:
- In-unit features such as expansive floor plans, 9’ ceilings, open kitchens with custom cabinetry and private patios with gas-grill hookups.
- Accessibility features, such as underground heated parking and parking/storage areas specifically for bikes.
- Outdoor activities such as bocce ball lawn, bean bag toss lawn, firepits, Jacuzzi spa and hammock lounge.
- Lifestyle elements such as a fitness studio, rooftop dining deck and community/club room.
Oppidan partnered with Imagewërks Marketing, a Minneapolis-based digital branding and creative agency to craft the new name and marketing elements.
“We’re thrilled to bring natural urban living to the Longfellow and Hiawatha neighborhoods and Lowa46 beautifully highlights the charm within these communities,” said Ian Halker, Developer at Oppidan. “The authentic and progressive neighborhood lifestyle of Lowa46, paired with its convenient access to two major urban centers, will make it a desirable location for both ambitious young professionals and empty-nesters looking to simplify.”
The project is on track for a Summer 2019 completion. The Cub Foods should be open in Spring 2019. The project’s general contractor is Anderson Companies and the architect is Pope.
