The deal, closed by Cynthia Froid of Keller Williams Reality, shows the demand for luxury downtown apartments is growing, the newspaper claims, saying several seven-figure deals in recent months is kick-starting the city's upper-bracket market.

The apartment is a sprawling 4,362 square foot with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, four parking spaces and balcony views over the Mississippi River.

The Ultimate Minneapolis Condo Guide describes Washburn Lofts units as featuring expansive ceilings, huge sash windows, brick walls and exposed ductwork.

At almost $1,000 per square foot, it is one of the most expensive condo deals made in downtown Minneapolis. The buyer, the Business Journal reports, is a limited liability company named Ellem & Opie.

In recent years, Minneapolis has seen a surge in luxury apartment construction, with river view condos in particular carrying a premium.

The costliest unit on sale currently in the city is a 12,000 square foot, two-story apartment on the opposite side of the river from downtown, which has been on sale since last summer at a listing price of $8 million.
