LMC, a leader in apartment development and operations, today announced the start of pre-leasing at Twenty20 MAD, a mixed-use apartment community in the east Capitol Hill neighborhood. First move-ins are anticipated for July. 

The LMC development features 157 apartment homes and 2,549 feet of ground-floor retail space, and is adjacent to a new public plaza and outdoor park. Residents will enjoy easy access to Downtown Seattle, the Pike/Pine corridor, the University of Washington and Eastside job centers, along with several dining and retail options within a short walk.  

“Capitol Hill is Seattle’s most vibrant neighborhood and we are thrilled to be a part of it,” said Brad Reisinger, division president of the Pacific Northwest for LMC. “We have paid homage to the neighborhood’s music history by incorporating some rhythmic funk into the design and amenities while creating spaces to foster a true sense of community among our residents.”  

Situated at 2020 East Madison Street at the intersection of Madison Street and Denny Way, Twenty20 MAD benefits from a prime, centralized location. Residents can enjoy downtown conveniences while also experiencing a neighborhood vibe while at home. Twenty20 MAD is just blocks from the Pike/Pine corridor, widely considered one of the hippest areas in the city and home to an array of restaurants, breweries, coffee shops and a prime nightlife scene.

Twenty20 MAD boasts a Walk Score of 91 and is well connected regionally, with several nearby public transit options providing access to the Central Business District, South Lake Union, the hospital district on First Hill and many other key employment centers across the city. Starting in 2019, residents will be able to hop on a direct Bus Rapid Transit just out their front door, which will bring them to the heart of Downtown in less than 10 minutes, running every seven minutes. The neighborhood is also pet and play-friendly with Washington Park Arboretum, Volunteer Park, Cal Anderson Park and Garfield Playfield all nearby.

Twenty20 MAD’s location on the east slope of Capitol Hill makes it highly attractive to people who work in the eastside suburbs of Redmond, Bellevue or Kirkland but want to live in Seattle. Its access to both Highway 520 and Interstate 90 directly links Twenty20 MAD to these eastside job centers. Additionally, the Microsoft Connector has a stop one block from the property, allowing Microsoft employees a short commute directly to their campus. 

Twenty20 MAD consists of studio, 1 and 2-bedroom homes and is pet friendly. The community’s unique amenities include a rooftop lounge with built in barbecue grills, a fire pit and amazing views of Lake Washington and Mt. Rainier, a sixth-floor resident view lounge with an entertainment kitchen and sound booth, a 24-hour fitness center with a multiscreen inspirational video wall and a landscaped courtyard. Immediately adjacent to the community is a large publicly accessible community park.

Additional amenities within the community include electric-vehicle charging stations and a package concierge for 24-hour package acceptance. Inside the apartment homes, residents will enjoy full-size washers and dryers, hardwood-style flooring on levels 2-6 and concrete flooring in all first-level homes, stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops with full tile designer backsplash, under-mount cabinet lighting and USB Ports. 

LMC, a leader in apartment development and operations, today announced the topping off of NordHaus, a luxury mixed-use apartment community located in the charismatic northeastern portion of the city. More information about the community can be found at www.LiveNordHaus.com

The 20-story community features 280 apartment homes, including 12 penthouses, and 22,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and destination restaurant space. Now that the development has reached its highest point of construction, the LMC team is focusing on completing the building exteriors and preparing apartment interiors for first move-ins, anticipated for August. 

"The process with this development was very unique, and we believe the backstory of the site will give NordHaus plenty of character," said Jon Fletcher, senior development manager for LMC. "After working closely with the city, county and state to prepare the land for development, we’re ecstatic to have reached this development milestone and to begin building our initial resident base. We believe NordHaus will offer an unmatched living experience in the area."

Located at 315 1st Ave. Northeast, the site has a storied history. 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 site was initially developed in 1891 as a car barn used by the Minneapolis Rapid Transit Street Railyard Company and used to repair streetcars. 

The community’s Scandinavian-inspired design, which mixes a European style with North Woods character, will complement modern-day Northeast Minneapolis, which is defined by its creative, artistic residents and businesses. Located across the Mississippi River from downtown Minneapolis, the locale often is referred to as “Nordeast” to pay tribute to the area’s northern and eastern European immigrants. 

The neighborhood features an eclectic 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. Residents also will be able to walk to the abundant green space and paths along the Mississippi River. The site also is situated less than two miles from Interstate 35W, which provides connectivity to the major employment centers throughout the metropolitan area. 

NordHaus consists of 1- and 2-bedroom apartments, exclusive penthouse homes, and includes 390 parking spaces. In addition to featuring best-in-market, Scandinavian-inspired finishes, the community features a variety of first-class amenities. Residents will enjoy a one-acre rooftop amenity area, multiple dog play areas, several bicycle lounges, package concierge services, work-from-home suites, a swimming pool, hot tub and hobby room. 

NordHaus is designed by ESG Architects and constructed by Weis Builders. Stay connected to the project by visiting www.LiveNordHaus.com.

LMC, a leader in apartment development and operations, today announced the start of preleasing at The Morris, a luxury mixed-use apartment community located along Music Row at the site of country-music icon Dale Morris’ former office.

The LMC development, featuring 344 apartment homes and 6,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, maintains the same address as Morris’ former office – 818 19th Avenue South – situated just southwest of downtown. Morris, a key figure in the country music industry for more than 40 years, has managed high-profile artists such as Alabama, Kenny Chesney, Jake Owen, Martina McBride and Old Dominion.  First move-ins are anticipated for late summer. 

“It’s an honor that LMC named an apartment community after me, particularly one that so perfectly reflects the beauty and artistry of an industry I dedicated my life to,” Morris said. “Music Row obviously has special meaning for me, and it’s humbling to know that my name will continue to be attached to the location for the foreseeable future.”

As an ode to Morris and the rich music history of Nashville, the community’s most distinctive features are a professional recording studio and rooftop performance stage. Additional community amenities include a rooftop club with pool, fitness center, clubroom and skyline views of Music City, a seventh-floor outdoor terrace with grill stations, a pet spa and bike parking and repair station.

Situated in the Midtown submarket, The Morris benefits from a well-placed location within walking distance of downtown, Vanderbilt University and The Gulch. The latter is an urban development on the edge of the Central Business District and home to various restaurant, retail and entertainment options. The Gulch is also home to numerous live music performances. 

Nearby attractions include the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, The Pantheon, Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, Bridgestone Arena and Nissan Stadium, home of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans. The community is also within a short distance of many of the city’s key thoroughfares, including Interstates 65, 40 and 24. 

Morris’ management efforts have led to 16 Entertainer of the Year awards collaborating with Barbara Hardin on Alabama and Clint Higham with Kenny Chesney. The owner of highly regarded event production company Morris Sound and Light, Morris has also teamed with Marc Oswald to help steer the careers of Big & Rich, Hank Williams Jr., Gretchen Wilson and many others. 

“It’s not often that you have the opportunity to truly honor a local icon with an apartment community, and we cannot think of many who are more respected in Nashville than Dale,” said Chris Cassidy, divisional president of the Southeast Region for LMC. “We believe this community will make him proud and be a stellar addition to Music Row and the City of Nashville.”

The Morris consists of studio, 1- and 2-bedroom homes and is pet friendly. Apartment interiors contain condo-level finishes, including quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, in-home washers and dryers, ceiling fans and luxury wood-like flooring. Visit the community site at livemorris.com

LMC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lennar (NYSE: LEN, and LEN.B), and a leader in apartment development and operations, today announced that it was named as the nation’s third largest developer of multifamily housing in 2016 by the National Multifamily Housing Council.

LMC started 6,244 apartment homes in 2016 to earn the No. 3 ranking on NMHC’s Apartment Developers List. The five-year-old company has ranked among the Top 10 developers for the last three years, increasing from sixth place in 2015 with 4,565 starts. Additionally, for the first time, LMC also appeared on NMHC’s list of largest general contractors of multifamily housing, ranking ninth in the nation. The company was the general contractor for approximately 50 percent of its 2016 starts.

“We are truly honored to be included among such an esteemed group and thankful for our amazing associates who have enabled us to grow,” said Todd Farrell, president of LMC. “Our focus, regardless of quantity, will be to develop quality apartment homes that residents are proud to call home. We look forward to a solid 2017 as apartment demand continues to outpace growth.”

NMHC has become the authoritative rankings in the multifamily industry. The council currently ranks the nation’s 50 largest apartment owners, 50 largest apartment managers, 25 largest apartment developers, 25 largest general contractors and 10 largest apartment syndicators.

LMC, a leader in apartment development and operations, this week was named a Finance & Commerce 2017 Progress Minnesota honoree. LMC was honored at an awards ceremony at the Minneapolis Events Center and profiled this week in a special edition of Finance & Commerce newspaper.

 

The Progress Minnesota 2017 awards program celebrates the accomplishments of individuals and companies that are making an economic impact across the state in unique and innovative ways. LMC was the only multifamily developer among the 25 companies honored.

 

“We love the Twin Cities and the state of Minnesota, and we’re honored to be recognized alongside several of the finest businesses and individuals in the region,” said Todd Farrell, president of LMC. “Minnesota is something of a hidden gem as it is seldom mentioned among the marquee markets, but we’ve really been enamored with the area, its strong economy and its fine people. As always with development, we strive to ensure everything we do has a positive impact on the neighborhood and the surrounding area.”

 

LMC began leasing at two of its Minnesota-based developments in 2016, and another will open its doors to residents this year. IndiGO at BCS, featuring 395 apartment homes in Bloomington, and Onyx Edina, a 240-unit mixed-use community in Edina, began leasing in 2016. Minneapolis-based Nordhaus, an urban high-rise to feature 280 apartment homes and ground-floor retail, will open this year.

 

Finance & Commerce, the only daily publication dedicated exclusively to business in the Twin Cities area, worked on the awards program with several chambers, economic development officials and government agencies focused on job creation and development. Those helping drive industrial growth and development, while investing time and energy for the betterment of the Twin Cities and the state, were honored.

 

“We cannot overstate the extremely enjoyable time we’ve had working with the neighborhoods and local and state officials on all three of our Minnesota communities” said Jon Fletcher, senior development manager for LMC. “It’s our mission not only to provide an unmatched experience for our residents, but also to help make a positive economic impact. We’re excited to do our part for the Twin Cities area and the state as a whole.”

LMC, a leader in apartment development and operations, today announced the topping out of The 23, a mixed-use development located in the heart of the emerging Victory Park neighborhood. 

The amenity-driven community will feature 23 residential floors, 285 apartment homes, 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas–Victory Park, an eight-screen, 700-seat luxury movie theater. Preleasing of apartment homes is set to begin in May with first move-ins anticipated for August. Restaurants, retail and the cinema are slated to open in December. 

“We’re excited to reach this milestone, as it means we’re inching closer to our goal of officially adding much needed luxury housing to the fantastic Victory Park neighborhood,” said John Allums, Texas divisional president of LMC. “The area’s newfound vibrancy has created buzz throughout the Dallas market, and we believe it’s perfect timing to add an amenity-rich community that will deliver a first-class experience for our residents.”

Future residents of the community, located at 2370 Victory Avenue, will enjoy sweeping views of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, Reunion Tower, American Airlines Center and Downtown Dallas.
