Plans Are Back On For Luxury Boutique Hotel
After a lengthy delay caused by the pandemic, work has resumed at the site of the old Commutator Foundry to build a new boutique luxury hotel at the corner of 1st Street North and 2nd Avenue North.
The old foundry, which actually got its start as the American House Hotel (built 1884), will be refurbished and incorporated into the hotel which will feature “a rooftop bar, a cellar dive bar, leased retail outlets, meeting space and event space, and a signature front of house restaurant,” according to a news release.
The managing partner of Commutator LLC, David Wilson, said this project will “reset the standard for full-service and boutique hotels in Minneapolis.”
The new hotel is expected to open in early 2023.
