See the December construction work for Via Sol!

In between the holidays, the project team has been busy constructing Via Sol!

In December, our build team continued installing cabinets, countertops, windowsills, flooring, electrical, HVAC, and plumbing! On the outside, more and more siding is wrapping the building’s exterior with Nichiha panels, brick, and stucco!

The Construction of Via Sol

As we move downwards from the fifth floor to the first floor of Via Sol, the apartments on level five are looking good with all of their cabinets, flooring, countertops, and windowsills, and the team is now bringing in the plumbing finishes. Meanwhile, on the first floor, the build team has been priming apartment walls, sheetrocking the community space, and installing fire, electrical, and HVAC rough-ins.

On the exterior, installation of the Nichiha panels, brick, and stucco continues inside wrapped scaffolding to help shield workers from the cold.

Via Sol

PLACE’s Via Sol community, a sustainable, transit-oriented community in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, producing its own food and energy, filled with art and imagination, offers healthy apartments and live/work space to households across the income spectrum.

Via Sol is currently under construction and expected to open in spring of 2022. Applications are now being accepted. For more information:
