At its April 19 meeting, the Minneapolis Planning Commission passed a series of approvals for the 918 Lofts, 918 N. 3rd St. in the North Loop neighborhood. Apurva Patel plans on converting a former brush manufacturing building to 30 for-sale housing units.

Discussion focused on making sure the new residents have sufficient noise insulation

from neighboring industrial uses. Among the new requirements, the Commission said

the developer had to mitigate sound by at

least 36 decibels.

As consent items, the Commission approved plans for:

  • Security Warehouse Lofts, 404 Washington Ave. N. and 201 5th Ave. N., a mixed-use development with 215 housing units in North Loop.

  • The American Trio project, 616 3rd St. S., a 90-unit housing development with ground-floor commercial space near the Metrodome.
