Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP), a family-owned national construction management firm and general contractor headquartered in Minnesota, today topped out the new Bower Residences in Edina, Minnesota. The 356,181 square-foot building is in the heart of Southdale near Target and Ethan Allen.
Representatives from AP, as well as ESG (architect), AVR Inc. (ready mix supplier), Reger Companies (rebar and PT cable installer), Doka (climbing core formwork rental equipment provider), UFP Concrete Forming Solutions (column formwork rental provider), Harris Rebar (rebar and PT cable provider) and the Bower management team were in attendance as AP poured the top roof to the new high-rise building.
“We are very proud to reach this project milestone for the Bower Residences,” said Brad Hendrickson, Midwest Regional President for AP. “Despite challenges related to COVID-19, our outstanding project teams have been flexible and resilient while remaining committed to client service and quality. The completed complex will be an impressive structure providing luxury, downtown-style living quarters in this popular Edina neighborhood.”
The high-rise apartment building will contain 185 luxury apartment units and 272 underground parking stalls when complete. The ground level features five two-story townhomes and amenities will include a fitness center, yoga studio, golf simulator room, clubroom with a chef’s kitchen, large sky level outdoor deck with lounge seating, a pool and spa and pet spa.
“The Bower Residences will be a landmark development for the city and people of Edina,” said Gary Wallace, Managing Director at Greystar Real Estate Partners. “This is a prime location located within walking distance of great shopping and restaurants and it has quick access to transportation. The development will bring a new, high-end residential experience to the area.”
The structure is post-tension concrete self-performed by AP. The AP project team and trade partners poured a floor every six days and ultimately completed the superstructure five weeks ahead of schedule, despite challenges and delays related to the COVID-19 pandemic and frigid weather.
AP has managed the construction of many multi-family projects in the Greater Twin Cities, including Folkstone at the Promenade in Wayzata, 5000 France in Edina and GracePointe Crossing in Cambridge. Other notable projects in Minnesota include The Farmstead senior housing, the new McLeod facility and North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale ISD 622.
