About Independent Living

More time for what matters most

Spend more time on what you enjoy and less on time-consuming tasks around the house.

Are you 55+? Ready for a hassle-free, beautiful home? How about on-site amenities like a full-service gym, underground parking, and restaurant?

Independent living apartments may be the perfect match for you!

Is now a smart time to move? We’re all concerned about our health and safety. We take health risks seriously. That’s why we follow the Minnesota Department of Health’s recommendations and guidance. Keeping residents safe is our number one priority.
