New Construction, Student Housing, Retail
Located along a light rail line, this transit oriented development offers a contemporary student living environment while preserving retail and restaurants previously located on the site.
The design concept created by Cuningham Group at 700 on Washington draws on the area’s nightlife atmosphere through ground-floor retail, including the popular Sally’s Saloon and Eatery. A hospitality-modeled entrance and lobby continue the nightlife feel and lead tenants to amenities such as a fitness center, break-out study areas, gathering space, and the management services office. A fifth floor clubroom offers unmatched views of the nearby University of Minnesota TCF Stadium and the surrounding urban university landscape.
The building’s skin is designed to allow 700 on Washington to stand out among neighboring buildings. Vibrant colors and a bright yellow tower bring the building front and center, surrounded by a host of traditional and institutional buildings.
With 98 units that serve 157 students, 700 on Washington achieved nearly 100 percent occupancy upon opening.
