Urban Life a stone's throw away

THE CITY: The city of Minneapolis, rated by Sperling’s as the #1 best place for seniors in 2011 has recently overtaken Detroit as the second largest economic powerhouse of the Midwest. Minneapolis’s highly educated workforce has driven per capita incomes to become the eight highest in the nation aided in part by its strong financial and biomedical industries. The twin cities are abundantly rich in water with over twenty lakes and wetlands, the Mississippi river, creeks and waterfalls, many connected by parkways in the Chain of Lakes and the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway.

THE AREA: Lake Minnetonka located 15 miles west of Minneapolis is the largest lake in the twin cities. Lake Minnetonka being the most exclusive lake in Minneapolis is host to homes typically ranging from $900,000 - $15,000,000. The red-hot demand for lakefront property around Minnetonka has made adjacent real estate prime for future development and present a uniquely profitable opportunity for investors.

THE PROJECT: Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Minneapolis, the 12 acres of land earmarked in Halstead Bay for the proposed senior living development will be home to a resort style senior living community designed to embody the quietness of the suburbs, with the luxuriousness of a country club. Serenity Encore will feature private pickle ball/tennis courts beaches, swimming pools, and docks designed to provide maximum comfort for active residents in the prime of their golden years.

GROWING POPULATION: The population in the twin-cities has surpassed 3.28 million residents and continues to grow fueled by immigration and high birth rates. This growth has contributed to a real estate boom in Minnesota pushing the housing market to become the fourth most expensive in the nation.

BUSINESS FRIENDLY: In August of 2013 the twin cities appeared on Forbes magazine’s list of Best Places for Business and Careers and was also ranked by CNBC as the top state for business in 2015. The area has the second largest economy in the Midwest behind only Chicago and continues to grow at a rapid pace.
