MoZaic East is an eight story building and an expansion of the MoZaic Art Plaza. The building will contain 186,000 SF of office and 11,000 of retail space, with underground parking stalls. In response to the high demand for alternative forms of transportation, MoZaic East will provide an additional 52 outdoor and 76 indoor bike racks and enhanced bicycle amenities, such as showers and lockers, while maintaining the previously-installed Greenway Pedestrian Bridge and the covered walkway to the Uptown Transit Center. The East building is complementary and respectful of the existing context. The design uses three volumes to step down the massing as it approaches the Midtown Greenway, maintaining Greenway solar access and creating strong and pleasing pedestrian and bike connections along the northern edge of the site. Multiple outdoor terraces are designed to enhance the interest of the architecture as well as its visual engagement to the context. As the building steps back, green roofs and rooftop terraces are included in levels 4 and 7, a two-story outdoor balcony on level 2 overlooks the expanded plaza, and a stack of small balconies articulates the southwest of the building at all levels.

Uptown is a vibrant commercial and residential district located two miles southwest of Downtown Minneapolis. The neighborhood is conveniently located, with access to I-35W, I-394, I-94, and MN-100 within a short drive. Adjacent to Lake Calhoun and Lake of the Isles, Uptown is also a popular recreation area.
Uptown includes the Hennepin Avenue Corridor that leads from Hennepin & Lake to Downtown Minneapolis, as well as the Lyndale Avenue Corridor leading to the distinctive Lyn-Lake business node. Within one mile of Hennepin & Lake, there are over 35,000 residents in over 19,000 households and 11,000 employees, with a median resident age of 31 years. Uptown’s housing stock ranges from mansions overlooking Uptown’s two lakes, to a variety of single family homes, duplexes, and multi-family buildings from the 1910s-1920s and 1950s-2000s.
The Uptown business community is a mixture of independent owner-operated stores, franchise stores, and regional and national operators. The business base is diverse with substantial consumer choice within each business category.
We’ve long considered Uptown to be our home, and we’ve helped to create a neighborhood that we consider to be one of the best in the metro area. While the neighborhood has changed, we believe that there are still opportunities in the neighborhood, and we are excited to continue to envision this trendsetting neighborhood into the future.
