Continental Hotel

Minneapolis, MN

The Continental offers stable, affordable apartment homes for 70 formerly homeless individuals.

Apartments are available as project-based Section 8, and others utilize GRH (Group Residential Housing) funding through Hennepin County. Enhanced supportive services are provided to residents through a joint partnership between Aeon and Simpson Housing Services. Residents will be connected to an on-site case manager. The on-site supportive services team is built upon Aeon's Resident Connections program model to provide resources and community involvement opportunities for residents. The front desk, staffed 24 hours a day, offers added support.

Development History

The Continental Hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the last remaining single room occupancy residential hotel of its type in Minneapolis.

When Aeon purchased the deteriorating building, it was mostly unoccupied. The renovation was sparked by the 1991 City/County Task Force on Homelessness' goal to produce 800 affordable homes to serve homeless individuals.

The Continental Hotel is one of several Aeon properties that provide stable homes for individuals who experienced homelessness. In total, Aeon has 485 units designated for individuals who experienced homelessness.

The Continental Hotel has received several awards, including the Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Commission Award in 1995.
