With an emphasis on business vitality and cultural renewal, the City of Minneapolis has set a goal to double the population downtown by 2025. Driven by strong market demand, Opus is supporting the city’s vision for growth by redeveloping the Ritz block on the north end of Nicollet Mall. Opus is developing, designing and building the 365 Nicollet, a 30-story, high-rise multifamily and retail development that will significantly up the ante for luxury living in downtown Minneapolis.
Located between South Third and South Fourth Streets at 365 Nicollet Mall, 365 Nicollet will be Opus’ third project on Nicollet Mall including Xcel Energy @ 401 Nicollet and The Nic on Fifth®. These luxury apartments will set the bar for luxury living even higher than The Nic on Fifth, an award-winning Opus development regarded by as the highest quality luxury apartment living in downtown Minneapolis.
A model for contemporary urban living, 365 Nicollet will include 9,500-square-feet of retail space on the ground level and 369 apartment units. With floor plans ranging from alcove units to three-bedroom penthouse suites, the residences will include condo-level finishes with floor-to-ceiling windows, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The building’s exterior will feature distinctive architecture with large glass elevations and a dynamic pattern of balconies. It will be designed to meet LEED certification.
Residents will enjoy top-of-the-line amenities indoors and outdoors, including but not limited to, a sauna and steam room, a sixth floor deck area with a hot tub, pool, cabanas and a yoga room. The building will be pet friendly and also includes a bike lounge with a repair station and seating areas.
Situated directly across the street from the Minneapolis Central Library, the 365 Nicollet will share a sidewalk with the Nicollet Mall, an area central to pedestrian activity and public transit that is going through its own renewal. For added convenience and access to office, retail and entertainment venues, the building will be connected to the Minneapolis skyway system.
