Cove Apartments


Historic Redevelopment

Nestled near the shores of Lake Superior in the heart of Duluth, Cove Apartments celebrates the harbor city with nautical-inspired interior touches and inviting resident spaces. On the corner of Lake Avenue and East First Street, the 1910 Builders Exchange property and adjoining Interstate Auto building have been reinvented as a cozy 48-unit community with studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments including five affordable units. Phase 1 of this community opened in Fall 2020 and reached 100% occupancy within 45 days of opening. Phase 2 sits next door, connected via an adjoining skyway, and opened November 2022 with 38 spacious new units.
