Wiegmann Associates has begun work on the new six-story, 308-unit mixed-use development in the Dinkytown neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
As the Engineer of Record and mechanical contractor for the design/build project, Wiegmann is responsible for designing, coordinating and managing the installation of the mechanical systems for the entire 487,000-square-foot building.
In alignment with the goals of Minneapolis’ 2040 Comprehensive Plan, the development is targeting LEED Silver or MN B3 certification, which requires that the HVAC systems meet strict energy efficiency standards. The project is expected to complete in June 2023.
Located at the corner of SE 4th Street and 15th Avenue SE, the site is a combination of six different parcels, which previously included surface parking lots and a number of one- and two-story commercial buildings that house businesses such as Subway, Dinkytown Liquors and McDonald’s. The new development will include commercial spaces and affordable student housing units for the adjacent University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities campus to allow more students to live closeby.
Catalyst Construction is the general contractor. BKV Group is the architect. The developer is CA Ventures.
