Proj Overview

You haven’t experienced the finest of Twin Cities’ suburbs until you’ve taken a walk through the vibrant and lush streets of Edina, where you’ll find upscale designer shops, a variety of decadent dining, and The Bower – a luxurious multi-family residential complex right in the central hub of the city. This sophisticated 20-story rental property features apartments ranging from studio to three-bedroom penthouse suites. Each unit boasts quartz countertops, high-end wood floors, and large floor-to-ceiling windows, while every resident has access to a pool and spa (both indoors and outdoors), a gym with live yoga and Pilates classes, and a large grilling and outdoor game lawn for entertaining.

Wells helped bring this remarkable building to fruition by manufacturing and erecting the exterior architectural cladding for the structure. A benefit of prefabricated panels is the ease of erection, allowing installation in a fraction of the time of other building methods.

Due to the tight construction site and height of the building, Wells utilized a tower crane to install the prefabricated panels. The panel finishes include a combination of acid etch, sandblast, and thin brick, with tan and black coloring – ultimately tying the look of the entire building together.

In total, Wells produced 15,589 sf (46 pieces) of architectural precast concrete insulated wall panels and 41,681 sf (265 pieces) of architectural precast concrete solid wall panels for use on the project. Built with an attention to detail, The Bower is a landmark that enhances the beauty of Edina’s community.
