Recent trends in the Twin Cities real estate market and throughout Minnesota show that more people are choosing to stay in apartments over purchasing a home, resulting in a record number of new market-rate rentals in 2018. “The Twin Cities remains woefully short of the levels of new housing production needed to satisfy the demands of a growing population,” an article by the StarTribune reports. In response to this significant growth, Ebert Construction has expanded our commercial construction services to include multi-family housing. Although new to Ebert Construction, the team we’ve put together to build and grow this division has decades’ worth of experience in the multi-family housing construction industry.
Jake Ullery, who leads the division, got his start in the construction industry at Ebert Construction. He rejoined the team in January of 2018 after ten years in the multi-family housing industry, bringing with him experience, knowledge, and established relationships with key industry leaders.
“Multi-family housing is a good fit for Ebert,” Ullery stated. “We’re an experienced general contractor. We’ve been around for decades, and we’ve got the right staff on board – the right project managers and superintendents who’ve been doing this kind of work for a long time.”
Currently, Ebert Construction has two multi-family housing construction projects underway.
The Heights, located in Mendota Heights, Minnesota, will offer 70 market-rate units (one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den, and two-bedroom). Currently in the framing stage, the three-story building is slated to open in August 2019. A second phase of the project, with an additional 70 units, will begin in the spring of 2019.
A second multi-family project, scheduled to open in December of 2019, is under construction in Robbinsdale, Minnesota. Birdtown Flats will accommodate 152 units above two levels of precast parking. Featuring four levels, a rooftop party deck, and high-end finishes, Birdtown Flats offers a mix of unit sizes at market rate.

In the late 1800s, two brothers in Omaha, Nebraska started the Bekins Company, a moving and storage business and the predecessor to the modern self-storage industry. The first chain units, primarily used for the storage of oil company equipment, appeared in Texas during the sixties. Today, both households and businesses utilize the convenience and accessibility of storage facilities. According to SpareFoot.com, self-storage units in the United States number close to 50,000, and 10 percent of households rent a self-storage unit.
DEVELOPMENT & SELF-STORAGE CONSTRUCTION
At Ebert Construction, we are in a unique position for both commercial self-storage facility construction and development. Clients often begin the process with our real estate development team. Our development services include assembling the right team to entitle the project and reduce overall project costs. At the building stage, not only do we offer comprehensive design/build and construction management of the project, Ebert self-performs concrete and carpentry services, providing a competitive edge in controlling the price and project timeline. With our self-storage capabilities, we offer further proof that Ebert Construction is your one-stop shop for commercial real estate development and construction.
