Ivy Hotel and Apartments

Wrapping around an original 1930s neo-Gothic building, the Ivy footprint was incredible small—less than half an acre in size. The design draws inspiration from the existing building’s character while including thoroughly modern amenities. Combined with additional new construction, the old and new are brought together through specific design elements, hardware, details, etchings and settings. As the developer’s project vision evolved, our team was there at every turn, helping secure the right hotel brand and key players to make the hotel and residential components work well together.

The design fully enveloped the existing space while leveraging stunning skyline views and exuding elegance. Home to one of the metropolitan area’s most preeminent spas, the Ivy also plays host to red-carpet events and dignitaries year round.

In Minneapolis there is nothing remotely like it – what makes this building so special is to combine the style and sophistication of downtown living while connecting visitors and residents with all that the downtown environment has to offer.

Outcomes

The Ivy is an ambitious mixed-use development that blends downtown glamour and uptown essentials.
