Minneapolis-based Sherman Associates expects to break ground on the new Riverdale Station Apartments, located next to the Northstar Commuter Rail station on Northdale Boulevard (behind Target), this fall. The Coon Rapids City Council gave final plat approval for the project last year.
The project includes a four-story 184-unit market rate apartment building, a four-story 71-unit mixed-income apartment building and a small retail component. The apartments will include many amenities, including a dog run, playground equipment, underground parking, walking paths and improved access to the transit station. The apartments will be oriented toward empty-nesters, professionals, and other area households, particularly those who use Northstar commuter rail. A second phase, which includes a senior apartment building, is likely to break ground shortly after the first two buildings.
