The Lorient is a boutique mixed-use development set in the charming Morningside neighborhood of Edina, MN. This quaint area is nestled just outside Minneapolis and offers a unique feel with parks, historic architecture, and exceptional dining and shopping experiences all within walking distance.
The project includes 45 luxury rental apartments, 6,500 square feet of restaurant and retail space, 77 below-grade resident parking stalls, and 40 at-grade, covered public parking stalls. Patios, rooftop views, and outdoor spaces provide residents with access to nature while still delivering a city living experience. The Lorient is impressive with its modern amenities, premium services, and elegant details.
Taracon Precast manufactured over 60,500 SF of hollowcore, 130 inverted tee beams, and 56 columns for the foundational support, elevator shafts, and multi-level flooring. Designers were able to use precast stepped ledge beams and columns with varying haunch heights for balcony and amenity decks. Precast concrete was selected for this project because of its durability and load-bearing capabilities.
