On the east side of the historic Mill District during the workweek a steady drone of earth moving equipment can now be heard. It is the sound of progress as the construction of the Eleven Minneapolis condos has commenced. One of the last remaining lots in the neighborhood will soon be home to the tallest residential condominium tower in the state of Minnesota. The road leading up to these events is something the is becoming that is becoming increasingly more interesting within the Minneapolis real estate market.
A few years ago, John Wanninger, Kevin Mullen and I saw a need in the downtown market for a true luxury condo product. A tower that was baked in tradition, boutique in unit count and delivered the highest level of service to its residents. We knew there was a market for a product of this caliber but didn't see a location within the landscape suitable for a vision.
About two years ago, Kevin Mullen was with his family on a walk through Gold Medal Park when he stumbled across a site which was literally a parking lot for a non-descript 4 story building east of the park. He knew this was the site for something monumental. This was the beginnings of the concept which would be called Eleven. Once the city approved the plans the sales quietly started in earnest. On October 7th, 2019 the official ground breaking ceremony was held by Arcadia LLC and Ryan Companies US the co-developers of the tower.
