MINNEAPOLIS (Nov. 12, 2019) – United Properties announced today that it has broken ground on Cherrywood Pointe of Bloomington, located at 5501 American Blvd. W., within the Normandale Lake area of Bloomington, Minnesota. The senior living community is expected to open March 2021.

This marks the first time United Properties will bring its Cherrywood Pointe concept to Bloomington, a community that is already familiar with another of its senior living options, Applewood Pointe senior cooperatives. “We are delighted to be further serving Bloomington seniors with the continuum of care offered by Cherrywood Pointe, from independent living to 24-hour on-site nursing staff,” said Mark Nelson, executive vice president, residential development, United Properties.

The four-story community offers a variety of floor plans and housing solutions, with options ranging from independent living to services with around-the-clock personalized care. Cherrywood Pointe’s 118 units feature 82 maintenance-free independent and assisted living apartments, 24 memory care apartments and 12 care suite apartments. Amenities include a multi-venue dining room, pub room, community room, salon, fitness room and yoga studio, sun porch and outdoor patio, underground parking, and balconies on most units. Community members will have access to daily chef-prepared meals, scheduled transportation services and a comprehensive life-enrichment program designed to create engaging experiences and an active lifestyle.

Great Lakes Management will manage Cherrywood Pointe of Bloomington. Customized health-care services will be provided by Gentle Touch Health, including a 24-hour on-site team of licensed nurses and nurses’ assistants.

Cherrywood Pointe of Bloomington was designed by Kaas Wilson Architects and Henrik & Co Interiors and will be constructed by Weis Builders.

The Bloomington location is United Properties’ sixth Cherrywood Pointe community in the Twin Cities. The other metro locations include Forest Lake, Minnetonka, Plymouth, Roseville on Cleveland and Roseville on Lexington. The company also has a senior living community in Littleton, Colorado, as well as communities under development in Naples and Sarasota, Florida.
