The Eddi Apartments (Pentagon)

The Eddi Apartments, a 202-unit rental community offering both market-rate and affordable units, sets a new precedent for commercial modular projects in Minnesota.

As part of the larger, master-planned development, The Eddi Apartments is organized around a public outdoor commons areas featuring ample green space and landscaping that creates easy connections to the surrounding neighborhood. Residents will have access to this programmable space that hosts events, concerts and other social opportunities year-round. The community will also feature a variety of on-site high-end amenities, including co-working spaces, a clubroom, fitness center and yoga studio, outdoor pool deck, and a dog run.

The Eddi Apartment’s architectural details are designed to stand out and be visible from the nearby highways. Materials such as stucco, glass, metal, and wood add texture, depth, and warmth to the exterior. Planted screen walls at the street level enhance the pedestrian experience.

Cuningham is working with RISE Modular, who serves as the project’s general contractor and co-developer along with Solomon Real Estate Group, to utilize a modular construction approach. Using this approach, the construction timeline for the development is expected to be roughly one year shorter than that of comparable properties utilizing traditional methods.
