ABBOTT APARTMENTS

The former Abbott Hospital is located in the Stevens Square neighborhood of Minneapolis.  The building was constructed in five phases between 1910 and 1957, with each phase reflecting different architectural styles ranging from Renaissance Revival to Mid-Century Modern.  The development is an adaptive re-use of the hospital complex into 100 market-rate rental apartments and 23 low income rental apartments.  Rehabilitation of the existing buildings included the addition of a new, two-level, below-grade parking structure. Abbott Apartments received a Minnesota Preservation Award from the Preservation Alliance in 2014
