Minneapolis Condominiums on the Light Rail Featured in Video Blog
Minneapolis condominiums are often built in locations that provide amenities to residents that extend far beyond the walls of the building. One project in particular that truly exemplifies this development trend is Olin Crossings in South Minneapolis. Balanced by a combination of modern advancements in transportation and lasting natural beauty, Olin Crossings offers urban living in an amenity rich setting. With the resounding success of the Hiawatha Light Rail Line built in 2004 residential development was sure to follow and that it did in a variety of fashions. Of the new developments, Olin Crossings was arguably the Minneapolis condominium on the Light Rail that was executed the best. Situated with a pleasant five minute walk to both the VA Medical Center Light Rail Station and the 50th Street Station, Olin Crossings connects residents to the heart of downtown Minneapolis and countless destinations by way of both Minneapolis international airports.
Olin Crossings stands out from other Minneapolis condominiums on the light rail in large part due to its desirable setting in South Minneapolis. Just one block away is 193 acres of city parkland known as Minnehaha Park. Attracting nearly a million visitors a year, Minnehaha Park is no secret and has been drawing people in with its scenic paths for biking and walking, its picture perfect waterfall set against limestone bluffs, a highly revered off-leash dog park, Sea Salt Eatery which City Pages just declared as “The Best Seafood Restaurant in Minneapolis” and so much more. Recent improvements to the park include a brand new disc golf course, a children’s water playground, volleyball court, and four more picnic shelters.
Ample bike storage was an early design requirement at Olin Crossings as its immediate proximity to “America’s Most Important Urban Scenic Byway”, the Minneapolis Grand Rounds, connects residents to over 50 miles of jogging and biking trails traversing to and around the Minneapolis Chain of Lakes which is a natural amenity cherished by many.
Inside the building these units offer a high level of construction quality and finish materials at an affordable price point. Maple Hardwood Floors, 9 foot Ceilings, Stainless Steel Appliances and Maple Cabinetry are just some of the attractive materials these condominiums were completed with in 2006. The modern layouts are open and airy and a number of the units feature a flexible den space with translucent sliding panels helping carry natural light throughout the homes. A 24 hour fitness room, party room and underground parking round off some of the perks residents enjoy at Olin Crossings.
The Hiawatha Light Rail provides an important and reliable amenity to Olin Crossings residents but the harmonious balance of the surrounding amenities and those offered in the living units and in the building make it such a successful project and great place to call home. Featured on MinnesotaLoftsandCondos.com are two units currently for sale. Unit #108 and #401 were both just listed and are 1 Bedrooms and Dens. Unit #108 has a patio space of 172 Square Feet and Unit #401 is most known for its 14 foot ceilings. Be sure to check the guided video tour of Olin Crossings and these homes.
