Description:

The first phase of the CityVue Commons development – an 11-story former Blue Cross Blue Shield office building converted into a 113-unit apartment building – was such a success that developers are proceeding with a second phase of the project. This phase will include a 122-unit addition near the Eagan Promenade shopping center, as well as a progressive dedication to solar power. The new building will be five stories and located south of the existing building’s parking ramp, which will be expanded, part of its top level converted into a solar panel garden. Projections see the solar garden providing up to 20% of the building’s electrical needs and will be, by far, the largest solar installation at any Minnesota apartment property. Wells is providing 509 pieces of precast concrete (beams, columns, double tees, wall panels, and plank), with a sandblast finish for this project.
