CEDARst Cos. to Develop 345-Unit Multifamily Complex in Minneapolis

by Kristin Harlow

MINNEAPOLIS — CEDARst Cos. has completed the acquisition of two adjoining historic properties and a land site in the North Loop of Minneapolis. The acquisition includes an eight-story, 275,000-square-foot warehouse, a five-story, 108,000-square-foot warehouse and an adjacent 32,000-square-foot surface lot. The company plans to develop the site into a 345-unit multifamily complex known as 6th and 3rd after its location at 6th Avenue and 3rd Street. The project will resemble the developer’s plans at The Duffey Lofts, also in the North Loop area.

The development will feature 42,000 square feet of retail space in addition to the apartment units. A 20,000-square-foot amenity space will include a rooftop ice skating rink. The rink will be converted to a soccer field or other uses in the summer. Other amenities will include a bowling alley, swimming pool and coworking center. CEDARst expects to break ground in the fourth quarter of this year, with completion slated for summer 2022. A consortium led by the Martin Falk Paper Co. sold the site for $21.1 million. Pat Minea and Dan Trebil of NorthMarq arranged acquisition financing through First Western Bank & Trust. Lamar Newburn of Lee & Associates represented CEDARst in the transaction.
