JAX is located within the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District near Jackson Square Park. The colorful building has a total of 65 units, including studio, micro one-and-two bedroom, and traditional one-and two-bedroom apartments. Amenities include a fitness room, roof deck, community space and an art studio. The ground floor apartments have private entrances and many units have private balconies.
The unique design features brick, fiber cement lap siding and metal siding with large windows to let in natural light. An innovative green-blue hybrid roof utilizes smart drain technology, native plants and underground harvesting cells to reduce the runoff of storm water and provide habitat for bees and other wildlife. DJR collaborated with the Holland neighborhood and other partners to create a sustainable and arts-focused design.
