You’ll love coming home to 1901 Lofts, located at 1901 Hennepin Avenue in southeast Minneapolis. The unassuming brick and stone exterior of the building is true to its origins as a Glidden Paint Factory built in 1923. The interior gives way to 55 stunning units with all the quirks, angles, and exposed brick and ductwork you expect from industrial lofts.
Converted in 2006, 1901 Lofts have sweeping 12-foot ceilings and bright, airy, open floor plans. You’ll love cooking in your upgraded contemporary kitchen featuring sophisticated lighting, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances.
Although the building itself is almost a century old, individual lofts are ready for modern living with their oversized closets and bathrooms. Most units have gleaming hardwood floors and beautiful and durable ceramic or granite tiled bathrooms.
There are many floor plans to choose from, ranging from cozy 540 SqFt one-bedroom units to 1,346 SqFt two-bedroom choices. These lofts come equipped with hookups for your washer and dryer, as well as a gas line on your private balcony or patio so you can install your grill to enjoy some barbecue on warm evenings. 1901 Lofts is one of the most affordable loft-living options in the city.
All units face south toward the Minneapolis skyline. You can see it peeking through the mature trees of the landscaped neighborhood below. You’ll enjoy the views from your expansive industrial sash windows that also fill your loft with tons of natural light. There is both underground and outdoor parking and additional storage lockers for residents to use.
You’ll appreciate how convenient it is to get around the city from your new home at 1901 Lofts. You’re a mere half-mile from the entrance to I-35W and highway 280. Downtown Minneapolis is only a few minutes away.
Of course, the building sits on bustling E. Hennepin Avenue, so breweries, coffee shops, restaurants, and shopping are only steps away. There are also ample biking and walking paths nearby so you can stroll or cycle for sightseeing or exercise.
Like other urban loft residences, 1901 Lofts has an association fee to cover many of your amenities. This lower-than-average fee covers sanitation services, water/sewer service, snow removal, lawn care, and exterior maintenance. You’ll rest assured knowing the property has professional management, and you definitely won’t miss mowing the lawn, trimming the hedges, or shoveling the sidewalks. These essential services are taken care of for you, leaving you more time to relax and enjoy a craft brew from your balcony while overlooking the city.
1901 Lofts is within walking distance of the University of Minnesota and is perfect for scholars and staff. That also means it’s close to Dinkytown, a popular Minneapolis urban hub known as the center of student life. This spot is brimming with restaurants and entertainment. You’ll want to try the Kitty Cat Klub for a Pabst tall boy or a pint of Missoula’s famous brown ale, Moose Drool. There are live bands several nights each week at the KCK, and you’ll enjoy the lounge’s eccentric and comfortable atmosphere.
The crown jewel of Dinkytown, The Varsity Theater, is yours to enjoy as a resident of 1901 Lofts. Its gorgeous art deco style plays host to live theatre, dance, and comedy performances, along with film screenings. It also has international renown as one of the US’s premier music venues. Mumford and Sons, Janelle Monaé, Regina Spektor, and many other indie artists stop at The Varsity to entertain audiences.
There are coffee shops galore for your morning or afternoon cuppa: try Up Café and Coffee Roastery for fresh beans, expertly-crafted lattés, homemade pastries, and gelato. Empire Coffee & Pastry is also just a few blocks away, or sample the creative waffles and strong espresso from the hip Black Coffee and Waffle Bar.
Walk over to Van Cleve Park to spend time in your local green space, complete with a baseball field, playground, wading pool, and tennis and basketball courts. Of course, there is also an outdoor ice rink for skating, hockey, and broomball.
Grocery shopping is easily accessible with a Lunds & Byerly's nearby for fresh produce and your favorite staples. You’ll also enjoy being close to Nicollet, formerly known as the Nicollet Mall. There you’ll find what you need at go-to stores such as Target, Walgreens, Saks Off Fifth, Nordstrom Rack, and Marshalls.
This mile-long shopping oasis restricts motor vehicles to only buses and taxis, making it pedestrian-friendly and perfect for sidewalk seating at one of the many restaurants and bars. You’ll also relish the beautiful landscaping and enjoy seasonal festivals at Nicollet.
