Luigi Bernardi of Arcadia and Ryan Companies have broken ground on Eleven, the first luxury condominium tower in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Luigi Bernardi of Arcadia is acting as the project sponsor and co-developer, while Ryan Companies is serving as the co-developer and builder for the project. Robert A.M. Stern (RAMSA) has been selected as the architect of the project.

The groundbreaking ceremony was conducted by Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and the team of Eleven.

Frey said: "Cities across the US have a long history of partnering with private entities to build exceptional things. When you look at the design and build-out of Eleven, you see an exceptional edifice that will play a magnificent role in the skyline of Minneapolis for years to come.”

The 550ft, 41-storey Eleven tower is claimed to be Minneapolis’ tallest residential building when completed. The new building is expected to have four units per floor, transitioning to two units per floor, and finally one unit per floor in the upper portion of the building.

Each home will include a large private terrace which is at least 14x14ft, the company said. RAMSA, Ryan, and local firms Peterssen/Keller Architects, Martha Dayton Design and Sotheby’s International Realty ensured that the building’s interior is as thoughtful as its exterior.

Amenities in the Eleven building will include a large landscaped terrace, a 75ft lap pool, a private motor court, a 24/7 doorman, an expansive fitness suite, a multi-sport court, a library, a golf simulator, a children’s splash pad, retail space, a demonstration kitchen with dining, residential and guest parking, storage and more.

In June this year, Ryan Companies along with Life Care Servicesand Harrison Street Real Estate Capital had broken ground on Clarendale Clayton, a second senior living investment in the St. Louis area of Clayton, Missouri.

The $120m 13-storey Clarendale Clayton building is located at 7651 Clayton Road and will include retail, independent living, assisted living and memory care residences.

Clarendale Clayton is being built on the land which was home to Schnucks’ grocery store for more than 50 years
