Brief Description: Bear Creek Commons is a 4 story 31-unit workforce and affordable housing development with a mixed-income base. 

This project is seeking to be sustainable, located on Bear Creek just outside of the Downtown Central Business District and adjacent to a bike path, bus transit route and close proximity to the Rochester Community and Technical College & University of Minnesota – Rochester Campus and major employers. 

TIMELINE: The project was originally approved by the Rochester City Council as a 23-unit 3 story building and then re-engaged with the approval of a 31-unit 4 story building. 

We live and work in the community and understand the need for affordable housing as Rochester is on a historic path of growth with the announcement of the BOLD initiative by the Mayo Clinic and are looking for an investment equity partner to potentially add underground parking and scale up the development and are open to provide senior housing, supportive or transitional housing with the right partner & collaborative vision. 

Currently, we are working with the Rochester Area Foundation – Housing Coalition, Destination Medical Center “DMC”, Olmsted County, LISC Twin Cities, Greater Minnesota Housing Fund, Maxfield Research and others to find a solution. 

We do have site ownership and are looking for an equity partner as the owner/developer is a signatory union contractor and MBE in the State of Minnesota. 

Total project Cost: $8,000,000
