Request for Proposal
Team: Louis Martin & Rachel Keenan
Located in Rochester, MN the team was approached by CommonBond Communities to help develop a concept plan for the 0.85 acres downtown Rochester. The existing site hosts a parking ramp that has structural footings for an additional 8 stories plus an amenity roof deck. As a team, we developed a concept that would bring affordable housing to downtown Rochester and promote a needed diversity
of housing options.
Site challenges included:
Tight, urban infill site
Creating a visible and attractive entrance for the apartment building at grade
Working within the existing structure to service the building
