Project Documents

EcoVillage Apartments offers 75 units of affordable, high-quality housing in North Minneapolis. The project used best practices in community-based development, neighborhood revitalization and sustainable green development to create a model for more healthy, stable and livable communities.

The EcoVillage Apartments development includes a number of eco-friendly stormwater practices. Stormwater runoff from the building’s roof is captured in a storage tank and reused to irrigate public spaces. A prominent raingarden area treats stormwater runoff as well as provides habitat in a highly visible community space. Finally, an underground filtration system helps keep runoff out of nearby stormdrains.
