“The HIT is keeping our members busy with another investment in union-built housing in Minneapolis.” —Dan McConnell, Business Manager, Minneapolis Building and Construction Trades Council


The AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust (HIT) is helping to finance the $37.6 million new construction of the Bassett Creek apartments development in Minneapolis, MN. The project will create 139 market rate units of housing with 3,670 square feet of retail space on the main level. The project will be located in the North Loop Neighborhood in Downtown Minneapolis.


The HIT is purchasing $33.6 million of Ginnie Mae construction loan certificates and a permanent loan certificate. The loan will be collateralized with a mortgage loan insured under Section 241 (a) of the National Housing Act.


This project will be built to the LEED-H Standards and located directly next to a proposed public park and green space. Additionally, the project will also include 159 underground parking stalls and no surface parking stalls. Units will have a wide variety of layouts, floor-to-ceiling windows, stainless steel appliances and more. The project will also include an outdoor splash pool with sundeck, fire pit, and an outdoor pet play and relief area.
