1018 University Avenue is a 2 1/2 story building built in the Queen Anne Style, and is part of the Florence Court site. This building is currently slated for demolition.
This house has a red brick veneer and limestone foundation with cement facing. It was built on-site in 1886 by Jeremiah Spear, and was inhabited by him for a short period. It has a gambrel roof and a side gable that completely intersects the main roof. The first story has an angled bay window on the northeast corner, with a stained glass transom. The second story features a bay window on the front facade which opens on to an open balcony. Four light sash windows were located in the attic gable forming an upside-down U-shape at the time of the site's nomination to the National Register (local designation) in 1981, but have subsequently been covered with siding. It has an asymmetrical facade with an open porch which wraps around to the east side of the house. This porch protects a side door on the east side. It also has a stone watertable.
Florence Court Redevlopment
This building was approved by the Minneapolis CPED-Planning Division and the Heritage Preservation Commission for demolition in 2008 because of "an unsafe and dangerous building condition." The building is still standing and occupied (as of November 2009).
