The Landing is a HUD 54-unit affordable senior housing project for Aeon, Minneapolis, MN. Located at the entrance of the historic downtown district of Chaska and adjacent to the Minnesota River, a high level of community interest was focused on the design of the façade and building massing.
With scale and rhythm mimicking a historic storefront at the street level, the Landing supports the pedestrian edge and is well connected by sidewalk to shopping, healthcare, the river trail system, and a host of other amenities found in downtown living.
Patio space off the south-facing courtyard area offers residents a place to relax outside, with nearby garden plots available to plant their own gardens and vegetables. By employing geothermal HVAC and increasing wall thickness and insulation, the building is outperforming many of the Owner’s comparably-sized properties in terms of energy efficiency.
