MINNEAPOLIS (March 20, 2024) — United Properties announced today plans to build Amira Lake Elmo, its newest 55-plus active adult rental community, located at 8695 Eagle Point Blvd., Lake Elmo, Minnesota. The company closed on the purchase of the land on March 11, 2024.

Providing residents with the opportunity to live near suburban amenities while being surrounded by natural beauty, Amira Lake Elmo will sit on nearly 12 acres of land less than two miles from Woodbury’s wide array of shopping and dining options. The property features picturesque views of surrounding wetlands, easy access to Oak Marsh Golf Course and Lake Elmo Park Reserve’s miles of hiking trails, and a swimming pond and fishing pier.

“Amira Lake Elmo follows the successful model we’ve established in Roseville, Bloomington and Minnetonka,” says Naomi Ohnstad, development director, United Properties. “This fourth location will cater to residents on the east side of the Twin Cities metro and offer the best of both worlds — ample green space in close proximity to the amenities of nearby Woodbury.”

Amira Lake Elmo will have 147 units ranging from alcove studio to three-bedroom units with premium finishes such as luxury vinyl plank flooring, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and large windows. Other amenities will include on-site maintenance, covered parking, additional private storage, electric vehicle charging stations and a pet wash station. Like other Amira properties, Amira Lake Elmo will have all-inclusive rent, with only electricity and personal property insurance billed separately.

To support an active, well-rounded lifestyle and foster a sense of community, residents will have access to daily events and activities, a bike repair station, yoga studio and saunas, art studio, hobby shop, library and clubhouse.

“Amira residences have been popular with 55-plus adults who are ready to embark on their next adventure because we’re offering them a community of their peers and a carefree lifestyle,” says Ohnstad. “Our residents are delighted to be able to focus on what matters most to them — community, family, friends and their interests.”

Occupancy is expected in summer 2025. Project partners include Eagle Building Company, LSE Architects, Associated Bank and Great Lakes Management.
