Work starts on ‘disruptive’ apartment tower for yuppies – Bring Me The News

What’s happening?

Ground was broken Wednesday on a groundbreaking new downtown apartment complex, called City Club – CBD Minneapolis.

It’s described as “disruptive mixed-use apartment, penthouse and furnished short-term community” on 10th Street between Marquette and Nicollet.

The 17-story tower is being pitched at[1] young professionals looking for an affordable place to live downtown.

And by affordable, we mean young professional affordable, with the Detroit-based developers City Club Apartments saying most of the units will be aimed at those earning $45,000-$65,000.

It wouldn’t tell BMTN how much that translates to, however.

Sexy bathrooms?

One of the attractions of the apartment complex is “sexy bathrooms,” according to a press release.[2]

BMTN reached out to City Club for further clarification on what constitutes a sexy bathroom, and it’s apparently “aesthetically pleasing with high-quality fixtures and amenities.”

Bathrooms aside, the 307-unit apartment and penthouse building will be split between studio, convertible, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses, complete with “oversized windows,” balconies and custom closets.

It also features numerous amenities tailored for its yuppie residents.

This includes a “Sky Club” with a gourmet kitchen, club style seating, big screen TVs and a fireplace – which residents can use to host private dinners.

Outside, a Sky Park will include an outdoor pool, spa, movie theater and a dog area.

City Club Apartments

It’ll also come complete with 24/7 concierge, a business conference center, wellness and exercise rooms and high-speed fiber internet.

As well as the apartment tower, City Club has also agreed to preserve the adjacent Handicraft Building, and will convert the Guild Assembly Hall into a 3,500 square-foot, two story restaurant/bar and event space.

Minneapolis mayor Jacob Frey was among those at the launch, and commented: “We are responding to the demand of young professionals for uncompromising quality and market leading amenities and services at affordable rental rates in the CBD.
