Twin Cities developer, Kelly Doran, is pitching a 117-foot tall glass and steel apartment tower near the University of Minnesota Campus that will add another 211 market-rental units to the nearly 10,000-or so that are already proposed for the metro area.

The latest is called "The Bridges," which is planned for a site that's at a busy corner in the Marcy-Holmes neighborhood where Interstate Hwy. 35W slips underneath University Avenue (918 & 928 University Avenue SE and 215 & 219 10th Avenue SE).

Once occupied by a Hardee's restaurant, the site is highly visible from the freeway and is adjacent to the U of M campus, which is in the midst of an apartment construction boom. Just a few blocks west of the Bridges site, Doran is midway through construction on several hundred luxury apartments called Mill & Main. That project is next to the historic Pillsbury A Mill building, which is being converted by Dominium Corp. into several hundred income-restricted rental units for artists.

The Bridges will be reviewed by the Minneapolis Planning Commission Committee of the Whole on Feb. 21; the project  is among several low- and mid-rise towers planned for Minneapolis. The tallest to date is a 36-story tower in Loring Park that will have an indoor lap pool and an outdoor yoga studio.
