Over the last couple of days I remembered to bring out the camera and take a few photos of what’s going on in the construction world in Uptown. The answer was a lot.

    Has anyone heard anything about the size/targeted price points for the new apartment projects?

    • Thatcher Imboden says:

      About $1.85 to $2.05 per square foot, per month. Pretty standard for any new apartment project in Uptown, Dinkytown, or Downtown. I believe there may be some units being built around Minneapolis that have units as low as $1.60 but they’re targeting the higher amounts. Construction costs and land prices pretty much dictate that cost, from what I understand.

    Although, with all this new competition I think they will be offering some sick deals to new renters, probably driving down prices of existing inventory as well…
