Bloom Rochester River Front Project

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 a 180 key 4-star hotel, with 130 branded condominiums; 215 unit high-rise senior community; 30,000 square feet of food and beverage establishments and 7,000 square feet of retail. Public spaces will be added, including an indoor winter garden, 3rd St. public plaza, rooftop terrace park, and boardwalk.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
