Lake and Lyndale. More than an intersection; it’s one of our most noteworthy neighborhoods.

Home to an eclectic mix of people and businesses, Lyn-Lake is steeped in history, yet invariably contemporary. A new housing development aims to serve the neighborhood and the people who call it home.

Lake Street Dwelling, the first of a three-building project, offers brand new, affordable housing, based on section 42 guidelines. Aimed at the workforce population, renters who meet the qualifications can take advantage of the section 42 federal tax program, putting them in a brand-new building, with an affordable rent, in the heart of Minneapolis.

With 111 units ranging from studios up to two-bedrooms, Lake Street Dwelling will provide high quality apartments in an ideal location. Opening Fall 2020, the concept promises to change the game in working-class housing.

Amenities: Yes! Full size appliances adorn the gourmet kitchens within the units that also feature modern, plank-flooring. Distinctive lighting and ceramic bathrooms set a luxurious tone in these just-built apartments. Residents also have access to the building’s numerous amenities:

  • Fitness Center
  • Dog Run
  • Rooftop Terrace/Patio
  • Coffee Bar
  • Community Grilling Station
  • Bike Room & Repair Station
  • 2 Club Rooms
  • Business Center
  • Green Roof

To inquire, applicants can head to and fill out an inquiry. The site offers live assistance, getting your questions answered quickly. Qualifications for the apartments are based on gross annual income and student status. Price points per unit depend on income requirements.

Lake Street Dwelling’s builder, Lupe Development, serves a broad-spectrum of the urban housing audience. Their next two projects, part of same campus as Lake Street Dwelling, will position themselves to serve other socio-economic niches, as well.

The Lago is a new construction apartment building with 132-units consisting of studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedrooms. The Lago’s apartments are not income limited and rents will be in the “middle market” range. This building is also amenities rich, including; rooftop deck and club room, fitness center, business center, conference room, underground parking, bike storage, a pet wash, and a dog run. The plans also call for a small retail component. The units will be stylishly finished with solid surface countertops, tiled backsplashes, stainless steel appliances, wood look spring 2021.

Breaking ground in Spring 2022, Lake Street Dwelling West will bookend the luxury build. With 95 income-limited units, consisting of studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units, Lake Street Dwelling West will have similar amenities as Lake Street Dwelling East, to include; club room, conference room, business center, fitness, pet wash, dog run, underground parking, and bike storage. This project will also include a small retail component. The unit finishes will be consistent with those found in Lake Street Dwelling East.

This lofty project seeks to keep this vibrant, and culturally important sector of our city bustling. The coronavirus pandemic, combined with civil unrest has created unexpected economic challenges for the developer, however they continue to focus their efforts. Their continued investment in the Lyn-Lake neighborhood looks toward a bright future and a safe community.

From the beginning, Lupe Development’s goal has been to create a rental community where all residents are welcome and respected. They focus on excellent customer service and a premium living experience. Pioneering Design and superior quality by a trusted partner.
