“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


The AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust (HIT) is financing the $38.7 million new construction of the Gateway Northeast development in Minneapolis, MN. This will be a five-story, mixed-use, multifamily housing project that will include 8,121 square feet of first floor retail space. The project will consist of 128 total units, of which 60% (77 units) will be designated as affordable.


The HIT is purchasing $21 million of Bonds issued by the City of Minneapolis under the Fannie Mae M.TEB program from Dougherty Mortgage, LLC. The complex financial structure included at least eight sources to bring the project together. The HIT requires 100% union labor on all of its construction-related investments.


Like many of the HIT’s Twin City projects, Gateway Northeast will be a mixed income development. The project will have 26 units restricted to households earning 50% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI) and will receive Project-Based Vouchers from the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority. An additional 51 units will be restricted to individuals and families earning 60% or less of the AMI. The project will also meet the Enterprise Green Communities Criteria, as required by the City of

The project will create 273,760 hours of union construction work and generate $69.9 million in total economic benefits. The project is HIT’s 95th project in Minnesota.
