Projects: Renovation-Occupied Residential

Project for Pride in Living – Southside Recapitalization

The PPL Southside project involved the extensive rehabilitation of seven apartment buildings on multiple sites in Minneapolis. Completed in the spring of 2008, the apartments were given interior improvements that included replacing outdated mechanical and electrical systems, adding laundry facilities and air conditioning and replacing all interior finishes. Rehabilitation of the building exteriors involved improving the building envelopes, including windows, siding and roofing. Most units were occupied during construction, necessitating minimal interference to residents. Low income housing tax credits were used on this $4.2 million project.

Steven’s Community Kitchens

Updating the kitchens in these historic apartment units helped the building owner improve occupancy and increase rental prices. Flannery Construction undertook the complete remodeling of 100 kitchens, from demolition down to the studs and sub-floor through the addition of new floors, walls, cabinets, plumbing and electrical fixtures and appliances. Each kitchen renovation was completed in less than one week while the apartments remained tenant occupied. Challenges included a lack of elevators and a timetable that called for completing nine apartments every week. No tenant suffered major disruption for more than three days and, while under construction, their apartments were cleaned every day.
