Overview / Details

In 2008 Sherman Associates completed and opened the 155-room Aloft Hotel located at 900 Washington Avenue S. in the historic Mill District neighborhood of Minneapolis. The Aloft, a Starwood Hotel, offers guest rooms on floors 2-5, while the first floor serves as reception, guest services, hotel amenities, and common areas, as well as 4,000 SF of commercial space.

Being recognized as a 2008 Finalist in Hospitality Development/Redevelopment by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, the Aloft stands as a representation of Sherman’s dedication to the revival and development of urban settings.

In their continued commitment to the development of this entire block in the historic Mill District, Sherman Associates constructed the Zenith, which offered 64 luxury condominium homes.

Adjacent to the Aloft Hotel, and just steps away from Gold Medal Park, the Mississippi River, river trails and recreation, and downtown Minneapolis, the Zenith offers residents contemporary living within the dynamic environment of an urban location. The project garnered the prestige of the 2010 Honor Award for Excellence in Concrete Design & Construction.

In 2017, Sherman completed the transformation of this block with the 11-story 123 unit luxury apartment building, Encore.
