The Bloom Development in Rochester, MN, is located on the riverfront of the Zumbro River, and aspires to set a new standard of quality in the downtown business district. This 1,000,000 square foot development creates an inclusive destination of hospitality and shopping, complemented with contemporary restaurants and nightlife. The project is composed of two high-rise towers: a 4-star hotel, condominiums, and senior living apartments. The towers are placed atop of a podium that features ground level retail, restaurants, and parking garage. The master plan concept improves access to the Zumbro Riverfront with a boardwalk creating a pedestrian friendly environment and activating the river’s edge. The location is ideal to form an urban hub connecting City Hall to the opposite side of the river and the commercial downtown area.
The development will consist of 100 condos, 40 leased apartments, 120 4-star hotel rooms, 45 serviced apartments, 125 senior living units, 20,000 square feet food and beverage establishments, and 2,400 square feet of retail. Public spaces will be added, including an indoor winter garden, 3rd St. public plaza, rooftop terrace park, and boardwalk.
