With many creative and inspiring submissions from residents in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood, Lupe Development Partners is proud to announce a new name for our senior housing campus at 2800 Wayzata Boulevard: Wirth on the Woods. The individual buildings for our senior living communities will be named The Theodore (affordable) and The Eloise (market-rate), in an homage to the beautiful setting of Theodore Wirth Park and the Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden.
Wirth on the Woods is a collaboration between Lupe Development and Swervo Development Corporation to deliver 99 units of affordable senior housing in a six-story building (The Theodore) and 100 units of market-rate senior housing (The Eloise) in another six-story building. These properties will share amenities, including an outdoor courtyard, garden and greenhouse. The campus also includes a renovated commercial building.
We are incredibly inspired by the thought and creativity that our neighbors put into the naming contest. We received more than 65 submissions! Many of them were inspired by the nature, people and history of this neighborhood. A selection committee including Minneapolis Council Member Lisa Goodman and representatives from the development team reviewed and selected the winning theme.
Congratulations to Liana Linnerooth, Tami Galvin and Emma Butzer for inspiring the new name and bringing a greater sense of community to the development. Each winner will receive gift cards to two of our favorite area businesses – $75 to Cuppa Java and $175 to La Mesa. We can’t wait to welcome our neighbors to Wirth on the Woods.
