Liffey on Snelling
Major developments are in the forecast for St. Paul’s Snelling Avenue. Excitement has sprung across the Midway neighborhood and not only because of the new Allianz Field. Gaughan’s very own Liffey on Snelling has been generating quite a bit of buzz. Finance & Commerce recently published an article featuring Gaughan’s Senior Vice President Dan Hebert, articulating the communities interest in redevelopment. You can read the article here.
Likewise, the Pioneer Press also released an article mentioning the development of Liffey on Snelling. Check that article out here.
This Fall, Gaughan opened Lighthouse Lofts Luxury Apartments, a new multi-family property in downtown Forest Lake, Minnesota. This 5-story, multi-use building is the newest luxury apartment community in the neighborhood. As General Contractor and Developer, Gaughan’s vision with Lighthouse Lofts and other developments is to bring new life and vibrancy to the core of the city. Investments like this are made to help fulfill a void in the market.
The first floor features a new location for Snap Fitness, to which Residents receive a complimentary membership with their lease. Mallards Restaurant has also opened their new, second location in the North corner retail space. Above that, Lighthouse Lofts has four floors of luxury apartment homes with several, additional walkout units on the first floor.
The modernity of this project is bringing a new atmosphere to downtown Forest Lake. The 8.5-foot ceilings and 6-foot windows in every unit allow natural light into nearly every room of the apartment, and the patios and balconies provide a beautiful lake view year-round. Residents can enjoy the rooftop patio, equipped with gas grills, in the summer. The adjacent clubroom provides a place to relax, gather in community, or reserve for private events in any season.

Gaughan Association Management recently joined an elite group of community association management companies that have earned the Accredited Association Management Company (AAMC®) credential from Community Associations Institute (CAI). To earn the AAMC credential, a management company must have three years of experience in community association management and at least 50 percent of its managers must have earned professional designations.
Gaughan is one of six association management companies in Minnesota to receive the AAMC designation. Fewer than 250 management companies worldwide have earned the highest level of professional recognition in the community association management field.
Gaughan Association Management will be inducted during the Opening General Session of the upcoming CAI Annual Conference and Exposition in Washington, DC on May 9-12, 2018.
