Modern Style — Vintage Charm

Located on the south end of Loring Park, 430 Oak Grove provides unique, luxury living. It’s a classic building with timeless style—yet all modern amenities are found within. Enjoy the fitness center, light-filled atrium, and rooftop deck.

Floor plans are as unique as the building itself. Choose from studios, lofts, one-bedrooms, and two-bedrooms. There’s even an apartment that is a preserved 1920’s executive suite.

Historic Past

It all began when Northwestern National Life Insurance Company nearly went under due to the fraud of the president. Once the old leadership was ousted and the company began more ethical practices, they stabilized and purchased the 430 Oak Grove lot in 1920. Construction was completed in 1924.

Hewitt & Brown designed the Beaux-Arts-style building. The wedge shape was inspired by Hewitt’s time studying in France. The exterior is gray Bedford limestone & brick. The front entrance style is called “Palladian loggia”—a porch recessed behind a tall archway flanked by paired ionic columns.

The mural in the front lobby depicting the history of Minnesota and the marble floor is from the original 1920s building. The carved medallions on the outside columns are also original. The exterior has been largely unchanged. The stately president’s office and conference room from 1934 also remains and can be rented as an apartment today.

Kraus-Anderson purchased 430 Oak Grove in 2011. It cost $20 million to convert the offices into luxury apartments.
