“Union workers are proud to be an important part of this extraordinary vision for taking a deteriorating and underutilized site and making it a place where families flourish and lives are transformed.” —Chelsie Glaubitz Gabiou, President, Minneapolis AFL-CIO


The AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust is helping to finance the $26.8 million new construction of the Greenway Apartments (Greenway) in Minneapolis, MN. This development will turn a vacant lot, an underutilized storage center, and deteriorating rental housing into 86 modern and high-quality affordable housing units. Project amenities include a roof deck, conference and community rooms, and outdoor space filled with patio space, grills, and a playground. The project will feature a public promenade overlooking Midtown Greenway.

The project is centrally located near the Midtown Global Market, offering residents easy access to schools, Powderhorn Park and Abbott Northwestern Hospital. The site is also within three blocks of the Chicago-Lake Transit center which will allow residents to access the greater Minneapolis area.


As part of the Midwest@Work Initiative, the HIT is providing $12.3 million in financing through the purchase of taxable Ginnie Mae Construction Loan Certificates and a Permanent Loan Certificate issued and serviced by Colliers Mortgage. The HIT has financed 108 projects in Minnesota, including 78 in the Twin Cities, all built using 100% union labor.


In addition to creating the union construction jobs and economic benefits shown above, 100% of the units will be income restricted. Of the 86 units, 11 units will be restricted to High Priority Homeless – prioritizing individuals and families qualified for Permanent Supportive Housing, 14 units will be restricted to individuals and families earning 50% or less of the Twin Cities Metro’s Area Median Income (AMI), and 61 units will be restricted to individuals and families earning 60% or less of the Twin Cities Metro’s AMI.
