Graves Hospitality selects Doran Construction

(Bloomington, MN)  Doran Construction has been chosen as general contractor for the initial phase of Graves’ Uptown, a Graves Hospitality luxury condominium development at the northeast corner of Holmes and 31st Street South, one block west of Calhoun Square in Minneapolis’ Uptown neighborhood.

The six-story project consists of nine units above grade with one level of below grade parking and partial first level parking to accommodate 1,000 square feet of commercial space on the first floor. The condominium units start at 3000 square feet and when completed in a second interior construction phase will provide luxurious finishes and include amenities such as a spacious fitness center and residential library.

Construction of the building structure is non-combustible cast-in-place concrete foundation with metal stud framing, post-tension concrete floors and cast-in-place columns and beams through the residential levels. St. Paul-based Collage Architects is the project’s designer.

Doran’s owner and principal, Kelly Doran, said, “This is a very impressive building with very sound structural integrity and well-appointed very high-end units that will be in great demand.  We are definitely honored to be a part of its construction.”
