In featuring the largest amount of nano and alcove units in the city (approximately 50 percent of the 300 units total), BKV Group with developer partner, City Club Apartments (CCA) CBD Minneapolis, pairs affordable high-rise apartment units with a robust amenity package to revitalize a location where the arts scene in Minneapolis once thrived. By simultaneously restoring the Handicraft Guild Building, a historic structure built in 1907 during the Arts and Crafts movement in Minneapolis, and attaching a 17-story structure off it, BKV Group creates an inspirational and timeless design and new downtown hub at 10th Street and Marquette Avenue.

City Club Apartments CBD Minneapolis takes on a vision the city has for people to live alternatively – namely, for the type of resident desiring an upscale experience. To accomplish this, the BKV Group design team conducted extensive studies focused on maximizing structural efficiencies to make it more affordable, and how to construct to a height not yet seen in the area in being positioned amongst three-story brick buildings. By borrowing from the original structure’s architectural past, the team crafted a design that loosely echoes guilded patterning on the façade as well as drawing inspiration from the sonnet façade mural in the adjacent Schmitt Music building. The result creates a streamlined look of windows and reveals, establishing a ‘Mondrian-like’ tapestry, set off a brick podium paying homage to the existing neighborhood aesthetic. Upon approach, one can observe the exterior patterning working its way upwards to draw you in, and when you get to the front door, you’re presented with a familiar street experience of approaching a building that is still of its place.
