From parking lot to Hampton Inn

Mortenson Development began construction last week on a new 211-room Hampton Inn & Suites near the First Avenue nightclub in Minneapolis. The site was a surface parking lot.

The nine-story, $37 million project is slated for completion in the first quarter of 2015. Located at 1st Avenue N. and 8th Street, the new hotel will be near Target Field, Target Center and the city’s entertainment district and will be connected to the skyway system.

Construction of the new hotel property is being managed by Mortenson Construction and designed by ESG Architects in Minneapolis. It will be the first Hampton Inn & Suites in Minneapolis.

“The vibrancy of the downtown Minneapolis market is evident everywhere you look,” said Tom Lander, vice president of Mortenson Development. “This property will be ideally located near major attractions and will provide tremendous accessibility to the downtown core, at an affordable price point, for the city’s guests.”
