Create Your New "Real" Life
Along with a home, buy an idea.
Our cooperative is a community of 55+ seniors who have chosen to share ownership of a multifamily residential
'Neighborhood Under One Roof.'
Whatever you call it: retirement, downsizing , living in the golden years, or just hey, I'm a senior (with discounts!) it can mean new ways of thinking about home.
Simplify your life
Free up your schedule by moving to our beautiful cooperative community. All of our members gave up home maintenance, shoveling, and lawn mowing in favor of getting down to the business of doing more living while being an important part of keeping our community humming! Here you can choose privacy or activity, serenity or the social scene - at any given moment of the day.
Location, location, location
Feel like walking? We're close to restaurants, shopping, recreational activities, the library, parks, churches, and more.
The Mississippi is just a mile or so down the hill. Walk (bring lunch) or bike the open segments of the developing 27-mile riverside trail from St. Paul to Hastings.
Feel like driving? We have easy access to 52, I-494, 3, and 110. We are just minutes from downtown St. Paul, the airport, and IKEA (okay, the Mall of America too). Southeastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin are just down the road without a city in your way.
Don't feel like driving? The bus stops at Emerson and Robert with a 10 minute ride downtown. And, we have our own van with volunteer drivers at your service. Hitch a ride with your neighbor across the hall - who knows where you might go? And recently W. St Paul's shuttle "The Loop" began stopping right at the front door every Wednesday!
Just right for living it all
