MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A brand new high-rise proposed for downtown Minneapolis will be considered on Thursday by a city council committee.

The Opus Group wants to build a 33 story luxury apartment building on the corner of Fifth and Nicollet Mall.

Called the Nicollet Residences, it would be the first new high-rise rental building in downtown Minneapolis in nearly 30 years.

The developer says it will offer a “San Francisco or New York-type luxury high-rise apartment living experience that will be the first of its kind in Minneapolis.”

    I lived in San Francisco and trust me these buildings aren’t all what they seem. They are ugly.

    It needs to be a multiple use building, including opportunities for condo buyers, too.
