INTRODUCING Wirth on the Woods


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. The park-like setting of the property will also feature a pond and walking trails.
A groundbreaking was held on July 14, 2022 at 2800 Wayzata Boulevard.
“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,” said representatives from Lupe. “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.”
Lupe is also currently involved in the Flats at Malcolm Yards, and Cornelia View Apartments in Edina.

The company is developing a mixed-income campus near the popular Lyndale Avenue and Lake Street intersection in Minneapolis. Amenities at the property include a fitness facility, a business center, community rooms, outdoor decks, a green roof, solar panels and a bike room with a repair station. The first phase, Lake Street Dwelling, is a 111-unit affordable building that opened in November 2020. Through a unique partnership with Hennepin County and the nearby Ballentine VFW Post 246, Lake Street Dwelling offers community-based programming and support for veterans experiencing homelessness.
The second phase, Lago, is a seven-story, market-rate building with 132 units and 1,000 square feet of ground floor commercial space that opened in April 2022. Lago contains studio, one‐bedroom and two‐bedroom units, as well as townhome units. Next up is Lake Street Dwelling II. It will offer 75 to 95 units of affordable family housing featuring mostly two and three-bedroom units.
