FRGMNT coffee shop, Thr3 Jack restaurant and indoor golf venue now open,
programming at outdoor plaza underway

MINNEAPOLIS (Nov. 21, 2019) — The Nordic, United Properties’ mixed-use building located at 729 Washington Ave. N., announced today a series of exciting developments as the project nears completion. Nearly 70 percent of the space is now leased, with just three floors totaling 60,000 sq. ft. remaining.

New tenants now open include FRGMNT coffee shop and Thr3 Jack restaurant and indoor golf venue, and programming at the outdoor public plaza has been in full swing.

FRGMNT, a coffee shop owned by Ben Banse and Sarah Roehl, has opened in the ground floor lobby of The Nordic. The brand was created specifically for The Nordic and features coffee from Monogram Coffee in Calgary, Canada, Heart Roasters in Portland, Oregon, and Saint Frank Coffee in San Francisco. The coffee shop has a partnership with Honey & Rye Bakehouse to provide pastries for patrons. FRGMNT is open 6:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Thr3 Jack, a restaurant and indoor golf venue on the ground floor of The Nordic, had its grand opening Oct. 7. Created by siblings Lucy Robb and Bo Massopust, the venue features six best-in-class simulators for golfers of all levels and a thoughtfully crafted food and drink menu. Thr3 Jack is open 5 p.m. – 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5 p.m. – 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

The outdoor plaza space at The Nordic has begun programming and events with yoga classes, a festive Halloween celebration and other activities. Featuring an outdoor firepit, planning is underway for additional winter outdoor events in the coming months.

Sable, The Nordic’s residential component, represents the first owner occupied condominium building that allows short-term rentals in the Twin Cities. Several units have closed, with just 15 percent remaining. The building features a Members’ Lounge, rooftop deck with downtown views, outdoor firepits and same-floor parking access.

The Nordic is a modern warehouse-style building designed to be the living room and backyard of the North Loop. Other tenants include Ovative Group and WeWork, a cooperative office space. A food hall operated by Galley Group on the first floor is expected to open next month. The Nordic is United Properties’ fifth project in Minneapolis’ historic North Loop neighborhood.
