Timberland Partners, a privately-owned real estate investment, development and management firm, has announced that Elevate at Southwest Station Apartments in Eden Prairie is now open. Elevate features 222 contemporary studio, one-, two-bedroom, and penthouse apartments, located steps from the SouthWest Station Metro Transit Center and the planned SouthWest Station LRT stop for the Green Line extension. The project also includes just over 13,000 square feet of retail space, offering a variety of restaurants, retailers and services. It will also be home to Brick & Bourbon craft bar & eatery, which is hoping to open by the end of the year.
“Elevate is a true example of transit orientated development. A mixed-use, mixed-income project that contains great connections to not only transit, but also to parks, biking trails, area employers and entertainment,” said Ryan Sailer, Vice President of Development with Timberland Partners. “It’s a great addition to Eden Prairie, but more importantly it provides our residents a home that is as convenient as it is luxurious.”
Elevate residents will enjoy a rooftop courtyard overlooking Purgatory Creek Park with pool, outdoor kitchen and bocce court. Additional amenities include a community room, family game room, co-working space, package center, heated indoor parking with bike storage, playground, indoor/outdoor dog run, and pet spa. The fitness offerings include a yoga studio and fitness center with the latest cardio, strength, and CrossFit equipment, in addition to a virtual fitness on-demand studio.
Elevate apartments are designed with diverse layouts, featuring modern, stylish fixtures and features in each unit. Kitchens are equipped with energy efficient stainless-steel appliances, large islands with quartz countertops and two cabinet color options. Designer lighting, luxury wood plank flooring, walk-in closets, and full-size washers and dryers round out the modern amenities. Master bedrooms include walk-in closets and kitchens come with built-in USB charging ports.
Sustainable features include a green roof, rainwater cistern and permeable pavers along with electric car charging stations. Residents also receive access to the services and amenities available in the Southwest Station area, including multiple restaurants, retail and access to bike paths, jogging trails and park spaces.
The $63.7 million, 222-unit mixed-income and mixed-use project was designed by Kaas Wilson Architects and constructed by Frana Companies, both based in Minneapolis.
