Mixed-use development to feature Minneapolis Fillmore Theater and Element by Westin hotel
MINNEAPOLIS, (April 4, 2018) – United Properties has started construction on Target Field Station, its fifth project in Minneapolis’ North Loop neighborhood. The 150,000-sq.-ft. building will feature a Fillmore Theater and Element by Westin hotel. The project is expected to be completed fall 2019.
United Properties’ mixed-use development will cap the company’s commercial real estate development activities in the Target Field Station area, which includes the Ford Center, Be the Match headquarters and Caribou Coffee. The .74-acre site is adjacent to Target Field and a central light rail station.
An official groundbreaking ceremony is being scheduled for May 2018.
“We’re pleased to begin construction on Target Field Station, a new development that will bring an iconic music venue and hotel to the Twin Cities,” said Rick McKelvey, vice president of development, United Properties. “We envision Target Field Station as the destination for people coming to the theater, coming to see a baseball game, or simply looking for a convenient place to stay while visiting our city for family or business purposes.”
United Properties is working with Live Nation’s House of Blues Entertainment division to bring a Fillmore Theater to its mixed-use development at Target Field Station. The Minneapolis Fillmore Theater will occupy 36,000-sq.-ft. and feature an intimate, 2,000-guest-capacity venue for music performances.
United Properties is also working with Lion Hotel Group to develop a 156 room Element by Westin hotel above the Fillmore Theater. Element hotels serve both transient and extended stay guests. The hotel incorporates sustainable design features and eco-friendly practices. Spacious guestrooms have fully-equipped kitchens, spa-inspired bathrooms and the Signature Heavenly® Bed. The hotel’s public spaces include a large fitness center, meeting room, and rooftop patio with a fire pit and exciting views of downtown.
The Minneapolis Fillmore will join seven other Fillmore theaters in the U.S. The interior will reflect the iconic Fillmore Theater in San Francisco, a legendary venue that opened in 1954 and holds a special place in rock history. The space will feature the Fillmore’s trademark ambiance, including a prominently featured chandelier in the center of the hall. The Minneapolis Fillmore is expected to host approximately 150 shows per year with an annual attendance between 150,000-200,000.
Project partners include Tushie Montgomery Architects and Weis Builders. Kim Meyer and Deb Carlson of Cushman & Wakefield represented Live Nation in the lease negotiations.
