LMC, a leader in apartment development and operations, today announced that Haus Salon has begun construction on its newest location at NordHaus, a luxury mixed-use apartment community in northeastern Minneapolis.
Haus Salon, which opened its first location in South Minneapolis in 2011 and expanded to the North Loop in 2014, is known for being chic, effortless and inspiring for its clients. The upscale salon is expected to open in spring 2019.
"We’re delighted to be the newest home for Haus Salon, which will serve as another exciting and valuable addition for our residents and the local community," said Doug Bober, division president of the central and Midwest for LMC. "As we continue to add retailers to NordHaus, we’ve made a conscious effort to choose those that have ties to the area and the local community. Haus Salon certainly fits those parameters and has cultivated a stellar reputation in the area for its unmatched quality."
Although limited, NordHaus has remaining space available for retailers looking to serve residents of the 20-story apartment community and tens of thousands of nearby residents. LMC is selectively soliciting premier retailers to fill a modern 5,300 square-foot restaurant space with an outdoor patio. An additional 13,000 square feet is available for either a large retailer or multiple boutique uses. In addition, Phase 2 of NordHaus, which will be breaking ground in spring 2019, will add another small-shop retail space and 335 apartment homes to the adjacent land on the east side.
The original phase of the community opened in 2017 and features 280 apartment homes, including 12 penthouses. Located at 315 1st Ave. Northeast, the site was initially developed in 1891 as a car barn used by the Minneapolis Rapid Transit Street Railyard Company and used to repair streetcars. In 1955, Superior Plating relocated to the site for a variety of plating uses, eventually closing in 2012. The plating factory, which manufactured parts for commercial, aerospace and military use, was demolished in the spring of 2014.
The retail additions will complement a neighborhood that features a vibrant mix of locally owned establishments within walking distance, including several craft beer pubs, the Yoga Sol studio, Gorkha Palace, the Red Stag Supperclub and The Herbivorous Butcher vegan restaurant.
NordHaus consists of 1- and 2-bedroom apartments and exclusive penthouse homes. Apartment interiors include a variety of Scandinavian-inspired finishes and deluxe touches, including quartz countertop, under-mount kitchen sinks, stainless steel appliances, modern wood-style flooring and in-home washers and dryers. Residents also have access to a one-acre rooftop amenity area, expansive community lounge, work-from-home suites, club-inspired fitness center, indoor and outdoor pet parks, several bicycle lounges and 24-hour package lockers.
NordHaus is designed by ESG Architects and constructed by Weis Builders. It is one of three Minnesota-based developments by LMC, joining Indigo (Bloomington) and Onyx (Edina).
LMC, a leader in apartment development and management, announced the start of construction of Ovation, a luxury two-tower high-rise and mixed-use apartment community located at the gateway to the First Hill neighborhood of Seattle.
The community will feature two 32-story towers, 548 apartment homes and approximately 6,000 square feet of retail. That includes space for a full-service restaurant in the west building, which will take advantage of Ovation’s location alongside a new public plaza. The 9,000-square-foot outdoor plaza will include a water feature and is located at the northwest corner of the block adjacent to Town Hall with commanding views of Freeway Park and the city’s skyline. The community is projected to welcome its first residents in 2021.
“Starting construction on this community is the culmination of a wonderful, collaborative process working with our neighbors at Town Hall, the First Hill Improvement Association and the Freeway Park Association,” said Brad Reisinger, division president of LMC for the Pacific Northwest. “In coordination with each entity, a plan was crafted to create a great pedestrian experience across the entire block, which then transitions seamlessly to the park and ultimately to downtown. We believe Ovation’s sleek cosmopolitan apartment towers and large public plaza will complement Town Hall and the character of First Hill’s streetscapes, presenting a one-of-a-kind living experience for our future residents.”
Ovation is being developed in conjunction with QuadReal Property Group, JTM Construction, architect Perkins+Will, civil engineer Coughlin Porter Lundeen and structural engineer DCI Engineers.
“We’re thrilled to join the First Hill neighborhood and LMC in creating Ovation – a place that discerning residents will call their home,” said Tim Works, managing director, Americas for QuadReal Property Group. “Ovation’s homes will be more than bricks and mortar, as they will enhance the lives of the residents and provide a truly unique addition to First Hill.”
Ovation’s location between Hubbell Place and 8th Avenue on Spring Street will be a highly visible part of the Seattle skyline and offer commanding views of the city to the west and Mt. Rainier to the south. The community is adjacent to the Central Business District and less than a 10-minute walk to both South Lake Union’s thriving tech sector and the vast entertainment options of Capitol Hill. This location boasts a Transit Score of 100 and a Walk Score of 97. Ovation will share the block with Town Hall, a historical cultural center and performance hall. Near-immediate access to Interstate 5 and two major bus lines provide prime connectivity to key locales across the metropolitan area.
Ovation will offer studio, one-, and two- bedroom homes, including two-story penthouse layouts. Apartment homes will include various smart-home features to include Alexa enabled lighting, thermostats and window shades in addition to electronic door entry. Ovation is designed to incorporate all of the condo-quality finishes now standard in luxury apartment communities with specific emphasis on creating livable spaces for those looking to move-up from entry apartments or downsize from single family homes. Ovation will aim to meet this demand by offering many homes with oversized bedrooms, bathrooms and closets while providing a luxury array of amenities.
The community amenities will be spread amongst 17,400 square feet of space and include an extra-large, state-of-the-art fitness center, co-working spaces, movie room, pet spa and covered pet run and multiple resident lounges for entertaining large and small groups. In addition, two large rooftop amenity spaces will include a pool on the west tower and a Pacific Coast-inspired setting on the east tower conducive for children to explore and play. Both rooftops will feature outdoor fireplaces, grills and seating areas. Residents will also have access to bike stations with storage, wash and repair stations.
First Hill is one of Seattle’s original neighborhoods and contains a diverse mix of architecture, ranging from buildings constructed in the early 1900s to cosmopolitan new developments. The neighborhood is often referred to as “Pill Hill” due to its high concentration of healthcare services. Many key medical facilities, including Virginia Mason Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center and Swedish Medical Center are within a 10-minute walk from the community site.
With a development pipeline of more than 2,500 apartment homes, the Seattle metropolitan area is one of LMC’s most concentrated markets. LMC recently completed The Whittaker, Twenty20 Mad, Axle, and Valdok. A second phase of Valdok is scheduled to arrive in 2019 with The Bower in Kirkland and One Marymoor Park in subsequent years.

LMC, a leader in apartment development and management, today announced the addition of fitness studio Shadowbox to the retail landscape at Marlowe, a luxury mixed-use apartment community in the vibrant River North neighborhood.
Notable for its healthy contingent of smart-home features and boutique-inspired hotel feel, Marlowe now will include an innovative retail component in Shadowbox, which utilizes elements of boxing to help users achieve their fitness ambitions. Shadowbox aims to bridge the gap between boxing and fitness with “transformative benefits that offer something for everybody.”
“We believe Shadowbox will be a fantastic addition to Marlowe and will help promote a healthy, active lifestyle,” said Doug Bober, division president of the Central and Midwest for LMC. “The addition of such a unique brand of fitness will complement what we believe is perhaps the most alluring community in one Chicago’s finest neighborhoods.” LMC was represented by brokers Elan Rasansky and Anthony Campagni, principals of ARC Real Estate Group.
Shadowbox offers classes, private training sessions, various trainers and its own branded apparel. All skill levels are welcome, including first-timers. Marlowe will mark the third location for Shadowbox, which currently has studios in the Flatiron District of New York City and another in Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood.
“We look forward to introducing Shadowbox’s distinctive, empowering concept to our Marlowe residents and the people of River North,” said Peter Chmielewski, senior vice president of development for LMC. “Residents will be the first to hear about Shadowbox’s events and they’ll have access to special packages. Like us, many residents are eager to see Shadowbox in action.”
Existing retailers at Marlowe include a Limitless coffee shop, which is integrated into the residential lobby. The coffee shop accentuates Marlowe’s boutique feel and connects the community to the artistic vibe of the River North neighborhood.

LMC, a leader in apartment development and operations, today announced the retail addition of HOTWORX to The Morris, a luxury mixed-use apartment community located along Music Row in Tennessee’s capital city.
HOTWORX, a virtually instructed exercise program created for users to experience the benefits of infrared heat absorption, will open in the spring. The Morris, situated at the site of country music icon Dale Morris’ former office, is aiming to add another retailer to its 4,350-square-foot corner space with an outdoor patio.
“We’re excited to welcome HOTWORX to The Morris, and we know their distinctive brand of heat-based workouts will be well-received by our residents,” said Chris Cassidy, division president of the Southeast/Mid-Atlantic for LMC. “This is yet another component in the evolution of The Morris, which we believe is one of the most unique apartment communities in the area, and perhaps the nation. We’ll continue to search for the perfect fit for our final available retail space.”
HOTWORX is a sauna-based training that consists of 30-minute isometric workouts and or 15-minute high-intensity interval training sessions. The objective is to create an ultra-efficient 30-minute workout, as the combination of infrared heat, infrared energy and exercise accelerates the detoxification process.
“The concept of heat training was proven with hot yoga. But some people crave a more intense workout option. Infrared heat absorption training provides a new fun, interactive and intense workout for those who live, and are seeking, a healthy lifestyle,” said Elizabeth Paine, owner of HOTWORX. “We believe The Morris is the perfect locale for us, and we cannot wait to open our doors at The Morris and give residents and the people of Nashville a chance to experience our one-of-a-kind workout.”
Located at 818 19th Avenue South just southwest of downtown, The Morris features a music-first vibe with a recording studio and rooftop performance stage.
