Doran Companies | The Bridges Doran Companies’ current project is the Bridges, a 210-unit student housing apartment development on University Avenue between the 10th Avenue and 35W bridges in the Marcy-Holmes neighborhood of Minneapolis. The 11-story building with all rental units will be complete in August of 2014.

The Bridges is developer Kelly Doran’s fifth The Bridges-V4_020413_webhousing project at the University of Minnesota since 2008. When this latest development is completed, Doran will have more than 600 units of student housing leased to university students.

The vision for the development is to create a “gateway” into the University of Minnesota campus with a design based traditional campus architecture interpreted into a contemporary urban feel. The main residence tower, with varying heights of nine and eleven stories, includes two outdoor green roof areas incorporated into the design.  The development will have amenities consisting of club room, gaming room, business center, theatre and state-of-the-art fitness center.

Project partners include general contractor Doran Construction, architect Doran Architecture, interior architect BDH & Young, civil engineer Westwood and structural Engineer BKBM.  The Private Bank and Bremer Bank are co-financing the construction for Doran Companies.
