DESCRIPTION
Located on Nicollet Mall in the heart of Minneapolis, Nicollet Towers is a 306 unit multi-family apartment building managed by Volunteers of America - Minnesota that offers housing to seniors and families. The two-tower complex, within walking distance of the convention center, churches and bus line, was rededicated in 2012, following a five-year $18 million renovation.  The roof and all windows were replaced and nearly a quarter of a million bricks were removed for a vapor barrier to be applied, with new bricks replaced to match the old.  The building's mechanical and electrical systems were upgraded, including a new heating and cooling system, fire alarm system and corridor lighting.  About half the apartment units received new kitchen cabinets, counter-tops sinks and flooring.  The investment has returned annual energy savings of more than $100,000.

The building offers:

  • One, two and three bedroom apartments
  • Controlled entry system
  • Handicapped units
  • Underground parking
  • Subsidized rent at 30% of income
  • Courtyard with garden spaces
  • Senior congregate dining
  • NAPS food program

The on-site Resident Services Coordinator educates, advocates and makes referrals to outside community services to increase the quality of life for residents at Nicollet Towers.
