Flats on 4th is a new six-story mixed-use building with 92 rental housing units and retail space at the intersection of 3rd Avenue and 4th Street SE in Rochester, Minnesota. We were retained to survey the property, mitigate the required hazardous material removal and perform demolition work of the three existing, free-standing commercial buildings including surface parking lots. We led the Incentive Development process for building conditional use approval, which included community engagement with the adjoining neighborhood association of Slatterly Park.
There were several design guidelines requirements in place for work occurring in downtown Rochester and within Destination Medical Center (DMC) that needed to be considered in the application process. Additionally, we performed both storm water and sanitary sewer capacity analysis studies for the city as part of the process.
We provided enhanced onsite construction services including materials testing, construction observation services, and vibration analysis and monitoring for the installation and removal of piling on this zero lot line construction project.
