The Marshall, the largest off-campus student-housing complex ever built in the state of Minnesota, is on schedule to open its doors and accept its first University of Minnesota student residents at the start of the fall academic semester.
Kraus-Anderson, construction manager of the project, provided a link to a construction camera showing the progress of the development. If you want to see the steps construction crews have taken to get The Marshall to its current state, just click on the picture above.
The 590,000-square-foot project will fill nearly one square block in Minneapolis’ Dinkytown neighborhood, just two blocks from the University of Minnesota campus.
The project, once it is open, will include 316 units each boasting granite counter tops, stainless-steel appliances and in-unit washers and dryers. Amenities include a fitness center, indoor pool, indoor basketball court, computer lab and underground parking for 300 vehicles.
