Hands down the largest Minneapolis condo building

The Largest Minneapolis Condo Building

Minneapolis has a fair amount of large towers that dot the skyline.  There are a handful of large Minneapolis condo buildings.  Some of the iconic few that come to mind are Carlyle, Loring Green, Bridgewater and the 710-730 Lofts.  All of these buildings cover different neighborhoods downtown from the historic Mill District, Loring Park to the North Loop.  Then there’s Riverwest Condos in the Mill District which dwarf the rest.

How Big is Riverwest?

  Good question: Riverwest from a massing perspective is not so much vertical as it is horizontal in nature.  There’s 415 units in the building with 600+ parking stalls inside the first few floors with one floor of below grade parking.  Of all the Minneapolis condo buildings, Riverwest has more guest parking than any other building which can be handy for residents.  Bottom line Riverwest is big.  To put some stats into perspective the next largest building in the market has 367 units and is on the other side of the city (Grant Park Condos).

Why Riverwest?

  Residents enjoy Riverwest living for a number of reasons.  With such a large amount of units in the building the homeowners association dues are quite low given the economies of scale.  Homeowners association dues or HOAs are they are sometimes called can make or break buying a Minneapolis condo–some buildings have HOAs that resemble a mortgage payment while other buildings have HOAs that are very reasonable, Riverwest being one of them.  Being in the Mill District gives Riverwest condos the distict location.

Minneapolis Lofts and Condos for Sale with a rooftop terrace

This is a rooftop terrace at a condominium in MinneapolisFinding a Minneapolis condo or loft for sale with a rooftop terrace is not easy–especially since there are very few buildings with such amenities in downtown Minneapolis.

Rooftop terraces are the norm in many cities with significantly larger populations and density.  In areas of Chicago and New York city rooftop terraces dot the top nearly every building from the sky.

In Minneapolis there are a number of different types of terraces within the loft and condo mix.  Here is a breakdown of the list:

This is the pool deck at the Carlyle Condominiums

Carlyle Condos in the Mill District arguably has the most dynamic terrace in downtown Minneapolis.  On the 5th floor of the building there is a pool, hot tub, fire pit (natural gas ofcourse,) and grilling stations.  All of this adds up to luxury living in downtown Minneapolis!

Tower Lofts in the North Loop has a rooftop terrace that takes a humble approach.  It is 5000 square feet of space with some grills, firepits and great outdoor lounge furniture from Design Within Reach.  A great spot for Minneapolis Loft owners to take a break at the end of the day during the warmer months!

Riverwest Condominiums in the Mill District makes the list with a massive pool deck and lounge area facing downtown and a busy spot for owners and renters to convene during the summer!

Lastly Bookmen Stacks and Bookmen Lofts both have some very interesting terraces for outdoor entertaining.  The Stacks has a near rooftop terrace that faces downtown.  What a sight to behold during the evening!
