Articles – Berkman


Elevated apartment living directly across from Mayo Clinic’s world-renowned St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, Minnesota.

Berkman is a mixed-use luxury apartment community located at the intersection of 2nd Street SW and 14th Avenue SW at the Gateway District leading into downtown Rochester. The property will feature 350 market-rate apartment homes, and approximately 24,000 square feet of commercial space. Early construction activities began in late summer 2017 and the project is expected to be complete in early 2020.

The property, designed by Minneapolis’ well-known ESG Architects, acts as a catalyst to further the transformation of the 2nd Street Corridor into a greener, vibrant, pedestrian-friendly “Live-Work-Play” district. The 13-story tower will strategically step-down into rental townhomes which provides a smooth transition into the residential neighborhood South of the site. Berkman will bring a sophisticated, intelligent living experience second to none. Residents will live a lifestyle that mixes casual comfort with a bit of glamour. With a prime location and abundant amenities, these luxury apartment homes provide upscale elegance in a historic neighborhood setting.

On the ground level, the property is envisioned to feature restaurant and retail spaces surrounded by a vibrant pedestrian friendly streetscape along 2nd Street SW. In addition, the 2nd floor will provide additional office and retail spaces. Given its close proximity to St. Mary’s Hospital and situated on a high transit-oriented corridor, the Berkman is expected to attract a large number of tenants employed with Mayo Clinic and will appeal to guests from around the world. The impressive list of community amenities that Berkman will offer its residents include a 3rd story rooftop pool, fire pits, grilling stations, and an indoor sauna (to name a few). Residents will enjoy unique work-from-home suites and private entertainment spaces. A state of the art 24/7 fitness center promotes healthy living; a heated, 4-season outdoor dog oasis and spa appeals to pet-lovers.
