Luna Apartments is a 6 story, 85 unit building on Riverside Avenue directly south of the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital. The proposed new building consists of common building amenity spaces on the first floor with a rooftop deck giving residents views towards Riverside Park and the Mississippi River. The unit types for the project consist of smaller one bedroom units with the goal of providing less expensive rents to allow individuals to afford their own apartments. The expectation is that building will primarily provide housing for hospital and University staff as well as some students.
The exterior materials consist primarily of storefront glass on the first floor facing the street with brick on the enclosed portion of the parking garage. Varying shades and sizes of blue vertical metal panel siding highlights the corner nearest 25th Ave, offset from each other to emphasize the floor line. Light gray metal siding wraps the other sides of the building and includes a horizontal metal band at each floor line. A dark fiber cement siding is used as an accent material on recessed section.
