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 provides 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 uses 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 combine to create a new landmark for the neighborhood and become a design model for future developments.
