Shamrock proposes massive 374-unit condo project

Updated: February 11, 2016 - 10:54 am

The Minneapolis condo king is at it again with a proposed 14-story condo project with a whopping 374 units. 

Jim Stanton’s Shamrock development is proposing its tenth condo project in downtown Minneapolis, the 726,000-square-foot Legacy planned for 13th Avenue & 2nd Street near the Mill District, according to plans submitted to the Minneapolis City Planning Commission’s Committee of the Whole. The more than four-acre site is home to the now-empty Cenveo building and a 148-stall surface parking lot, according to the plans. 

Shamrock isn’t proposing any commercial space in the building. Legacy would be made out of a variety of materials — stone, glass, metal panel, wood grain panel and fiber cement composite panels — to compliment Shamrock’s nearby Bridgewater and Stonebridge condo communities. The units, which would range from 950 to 3,900 square feet, would be divided from as high as 33 units per floor to just nine units on the top three floors. 

Legacy, proposed for 121 12th Ave. S., would have nearly 700 parking stalls with three underground parking levels. The developer is proposing a host of amenities, including a playground, pet exercise area, pool and spa, bike racks, a community room, game room, green roof, lawn bowling and an exercise room. 

St. Paul-based Oertel Architects is handling the project’s design. The preliminary plans are up for discussion at the CPC’s Committee of the Whole meeting on Feb. 11. 

Planning staff have a number of concerns with the current plans. They plan to discuss the project’s overall massing, the number of materials and the location of utilities, among other concerns, at the meeting.
