Location: Minneapolis, MN
The new aloft Hotel concept by Starwood is a part of the Mills District neighborhood along Washington Avenue in Minneapolis. The brand debut is a W-Hotel inspired concept that pushes the envelope of the select service industry. Elness Swenson Graham Architects recreated this suburban prototype into an urban destination within a block development that includes two separate condominium buildings of 170 units. Adjacent to the new Guthrie Theater and Gold Medal Park, both the hotel and Zenith Condominiums will be in the heart of a re-energized Mills District of Minneapolis.
