Well Building Standard
Slated to be Minneapolis' first multi-family, residential building to achieve the WELL Building Standard™, 800 Washington contributes to the health and wellness of its community.

This 14-story, mixed-used residential, office and retail structure aims to amplify the culture-rich, wellness-oriented attributes of the Mill District within Minneapolis’s Downtown East Neighborhood. Sustainably designed to achieve LEED Gold certification and meet the WELL Building StandardTM, 800 Washington is clad in photocatalytic (pollution-eating) concrete with pocket parks punctuating its façade, a public agricultural garden and private green space on the roof, second-floor offices for The American Academy of Neurology, 12 floors of residential condominiums (including 11 units set aside to provide affordable housing), and ground-level tenant spaces for businesses whose products and services support the residents’ healthy lifestyles.

A four-story, 30-by-60-foot winter garden accommodates trees and other large plantings.
