Hawthorne EcoVillage Phase III


Minneapolis, MN


Project for Pride in Living


71 Apartments, 4 Townhomes



Hawthorne EcoVillage is a four-block area in North Minneapolis working to create and maintain a neighborhood that is a model of sustainability. This phase of the masterplan is a mixed-use building that will provide 71 affordable living apartments, four townhomes, community space for both residents and youth, and a shared courtyard.

To align with both the MN Green Communities checklist and the Energy Star for Homes Pilot Project requirements, the Hawthorne EcoVillage Phase III will use multiple green strategies, including a planned photovoltaic panel array, innovative stormwater management, a highly efficient mechanical system and building envelope, and ongoing tenant education. These elements will combine to create a new landmark for the neighborhood and become a design model for future developments.
