New brick boulevard in front of the office

We are proud owners of a clean and semi-permeable paver boulevard! It’s been a long road of trying to keep sod alive throughout the years, and the City of Minneapolis decided to commit to a longer term solution. As real estate agents, we appreciate the increased curb appeal for our street front office! Thanks to Tim with the city and EarthPavers. LLC for the extra attention to the details around the meters and streetlights!photo(3)

Water Works Park moving full steam ahead!

August 2014

Water Works design nearing completion

The Minneapolis Parks Foundation has the green-light to proceed on the final design elements for Water Works, following an endorsement of recommended revisions by a key community group.

The recommendations came from rethinking two key features within the Water Works site – the location of the future park pavilion and the expression of the historic inlet canal and gatehouse – in response to community input.

Read the full story – including additional recommendations – on our blog.

The final design is slated for presentation to the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board in October.


The digital 2013 Annual Report is accurate, and available to read or download from our website.
