I toured many properties when I first arrived in Minneapolis. But when I came to Soltvå I knew I had found "home." People are real here and I feel like the management team truly cares about my needs.— new Soltvå resident from Charlotte
our sustainable story: from sweden to the north loop of minneapolis.
Soltvå is the brainchild of Curt Gunsbury, an ardent environmentalist and former special education teacher who gathered the support of six college friends to create Solhem — a green rental apartment building in Uptown Minneapolis. When longtime North Loop resident Robb Miller approached the team about bringing the Solhem concept to the Minneapolis Warehouse District, a new partnership was born. Soltvå means "second sun" in Swedish. The building takes its inspiration from a house in Särö, Sweden, where a life-long friend of Curt's lives. With its abundance of natural sunlight, cutting-edge modern aesthetic, and close proximity to shops and nature trails, the house — and the building it's named for — epitomizes the good life.
