Apartment Development in Minneapolis and St. Paul

Real Estate Equities is skilled in all aspects of property development, construction and apartment acquisitions. Our St. Paul office has in-house development and construction management professionals that understand how to design and develop the right product for a given market, customer and opportunity. Watch our video to learn more about our apartment development in St. Paul and the surrounding areas. One of the recent market opportunities Real Estate Equities has aggressively pursued is a Value-add strategy to several apartment communities we own and/or manage for others. Over the past two years, Real Estate Equities has completed or initiated the renovation of over six apartment communities comprising over 900 apartment units. Through these Value-add strategies we have increased rents by up to 20% and have been successful in making apartment renovations to St. Paul buildings while occupied by paying residents, so as not to lose revenue during the renovation.
