Flats at West End

Completion Year: 2013
Description: 119 apartment units
Project Partners: Ryan Companies, BKV Architects, Klefstad Companies
The Flats at West End is situated on approximately one acre near The Shops at West End, minutes from downtown Minneapolis. Built in 2013, The Flats was the first residential development in an area that was, at the time, primarily office and retail. The building’s rooftop entertainment deck adds to the outdoor vibrancy of the surrounding restaurant patios and the curved glass façade and signature architectural “crown” is a visual gateway between the retail area and the many successful residential projects that have since been built. The Flats was fully occupied within three months of opening and established the West End as a coveted market for luxury apartment living. The successful execution of The Flats spurred investment in housing by other apartment developers which, in turn, supported the surrounding office and retail markets; the West End area is now one of the most popular places in the Twin Cities to live, work, and play.
