Embodying the distinctive vision of Robert A.M. Stern Architects, ELEVEN reinvents the topology of the urban residential tower and instills a sense of grandeur in Minneapolis.
Robert A.M. Stern Architects is an award-winning architecture firm with broad experience in residential, commercial, and institutional work. The firm is known for buildings that capture the spirit of the places in which they are built and for adapting the principles of Classicism to contemporary ways of living.
The firm has undertaken decades of research and design exploration to understand how people want to live in cities, and applied lessons learned over fifty years of designing custom private houses, to have created some of the most successful and architecturally significant recent condominium towers in the U.S., such as the record-setting 15 Central Park West in New York, and One Bennett Park in Chicago.
Ryan Companies was founded in 1938 by James Ryan, Pat Ryan’s grandfather, in Hibbing, MN. The guiding premise was this: “Take care of the customer and the customer will take care of you.” Ryan was customer obsessed before it was fashionable, working off the old-fashioned notion of treating people as you wanted to be treated, and doing business in accordance with a set of firm values.
These founding principles form the Ryan culture and have continued to differentiate Ryan in the market for over 80 years. Under Pat’s leadership, Ryan has grown to over 1,300 employees, located in offices around the country, delivering over $1.8B in revenue annually. Ryan uniquely combines expertise in design, construction, development, property management and capital markets. Today, the company is led by family members and non-family members alike. One of the fourth generation family members, Mike, began his career at the offices of Robert A.M. Stern Architects in New York. In that sense, ELEVEN is truly a display of Ryan’s long-term goal of building lasting relationships.
For over 50 years, the Bernardi Family and Arcadia Development have been known for a multi-generational outlook for developing and holding high quality projects.

Stern Architects and Ryan, Luigi Bernardi has set out to bring a world-class residential building to Minneapolis. That moment has come with ELEVEN, a capstone project for Arcadia and Mr. Bernardi.
