Fast moving Via Sol construction in February!
February was a short, but busy month for our hard working crew who worked on the garage, doors, interior finishes, appliances, and siding.
Interested in joining the Via Sol community? PLACE and MetroPlains are hosting tours of Via Sol for potential residents on Thursday, March 24 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm! This is an active construction site, so wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes. Please wear a mask to protect fellow attendees and the project team. Meet us at 5855 MN Service Rd 7, St. Louis Park.

February Construction of Via Sol
The Via Sol construction crew led by Greiner continues working their way down from the top floor. Interior doors are installed on the 5th floor and are starting on the 4th. Appliances and medicine cabinets are being installed on the upper floors as well. The team is almost done with drywall on the 1st floor after completing floors 5 through 2.
The apartments are looking more and more like homes as work continues for Via Sol's highly efficient plumbing and heating/cooling by Horwitz, electrical by Ben Franklin Electric, and non-toxic flooring, millwork, and paint carefully selected by MSR Design. The ceiling of the precast concrete garage built by Wells is being thoroughly insulated to help keep these future homes warm in the winter. All of this wonderful work is in good hands with Escape Fire’s fire protection systems throughout the building. Exterior construction continues with siding panels, brick, and stucco. Rachel and Barr prepare for site work that will begin with the coming spring thaw, including the Urban Art Forest.
