Catholic Eldercare to build new apartments, rename main campus

Groundbreaking for a new Catholic Eldercare apartment building has been set for August, with plans to open in the summer of 2018.

The new complex in northeast Minneapolis on Second Street and Broadway Avenue will have 65 units of one- and two-bedroom units, which will range from 800 to 1,300 square feet. The facility will also have food service for residents, concierge services and a green roof. It will be the sixth Catholic Eldercare site.

Dan Johnson, Catholic Eldercare president and CEO, said it will serve senior citizens who want to stay in northeast Minneapolis “without paying downtown rents.” Catholic Eldercare will also rename its main campus on Main Street after Albert Hofstede, Minneapolis’ first Catholic mayor. Hofstede served in the 1970s and died in 2016, and played a role in Catholic Eldercare’s founding.
