“These HIT-funded projects really help us provide multifamily housing. We have been faced with an affordable housing crisis just like many places, so the more we can build the better it will be for working families. And it seems the HIT is always there to help us out.”” —Dan McConnell, Business Manager, Minneapolis Building and Construction Trades Council


Elevate at Southwest Station, developed by Timberland Partners, will feature 222 units of both affordable and market-rate housing, more than 13,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space, a fitness center and rooftop pool, and an underground parking garage. Elevate is also located adjacent to the Southwest Transit Center, where a METRO Green Line light rail extension is being constructed that will offer direct access to downtown Minneapolis.


The HIT is purchasing $49.5 million of Ginnie Mae construction loan certificates and a permanent loan certificate from Jones Lang LaSalle Multifamily, LLC, backed by a HUD/FHA-insured Section 221(d)(4) first mortgage loan.


Elevate at Southwest Station will offer both affordable and market-rate housing in the suburbs of the Twin Cities, with easy access to public transportation. The development has been designed as environmentally sustainable, and includes a green roof and a rainwater collection system. The project will create 269 union construction jobs, and approximately 670 jobs across all industries.
