To increase the availability of affordable housing in the Minneapolis area, Noor Companies and Redesign partnered with Pope Design Group to design a new 39 unit community called Wadaag Commons.

The project team is creating a community that focuses on Sustainable, Healthy and Culturally Competent design. It features:

  • Darcy geothermal system
  • Green roof
  • Playground designed for children of different age groups as well as children with autism
  • Raised planting beds for each unit
  • Amenity space with roof deck
  • Townhomes with walkout patios
  • Public art / mural on the building

The project is the last piece of Seward Commons which is a multi-phase, transit-oriented, mixed use, mixed income, master-planned redevelopment. Wadaag Commons has received funding through MHFA and is also seeking City Funding and Section 8 Vouchers.
