The Shakopee Apartments Development in Shakopee, MN is progressing well.
This development consisting of luxury market rate apartments, townhomes, restaurant and retail/fitness is on track to break ground this year.
The Riverside Redevelopment project is intended as a vehicle to revitalize and extend development to the westside of downtown Shakopee. This project seeks to be a catalyst for future development. With 170 units, it will
add a significant number of residents into downtown Shakopee. The project seeks to make connections to the Minnesota River and the downtown core.
The site context is dominated by the presence of the Minnesota River, which has great significance both today and historically. The restaurant will provide residents a convenient opportunity to take in the splendor of the
river and surrounding beauty.
Given the Businesses to the west along 1st Street, the project seeks to become a gateway to the City from the west and will add a significant architectural presence. Its design will emphasize the qualities of elegant and durable materials that speak both to its historic nature
and a revitalized future.

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.

“So far, it’s been a combination of out-of-state and international-type investors, local investors, and everything in between,” Tom Opsahl said. “It’ll be really interesting to see over the next 12 months how it turns out.”

Every year, Gaughan Companies hosts an annual team building event for all of its employees. This year, we took a day during the week to go to Big Thrill Factory in Oakdale with the whole company.
After an address from the company president, Patrick Gaughan, the attendees ate lunch and gathered into smaller groups in order to connect one-on-one with their coworkers. Our staff is growing, and with many of them at locations throughout the Twin Cities, it is important for us to take the time for these team building activities.
We participated in activities like go karts, laser tag, a ropes course, indoor zip line, and other events, like the Gaughan Jeopardy game. The atmosphere was filled with good spirits and friendly competition!
We appreciate our employees and all that they do for our company and our community. We are blessed to have a wonderful group to work with!

While many people are hesitant when faced with a change, real estate developers welcome change and are always up for a challenge; it comes with the territory. At a development site, people can generally only see that a building is worn down and beyond use, but they don’t want to let go of what once was.
An artistic, visionary developer can see beyond what may currently be there. They recognize the potential in a worn down building, if it can be repurposed instead of demolished. But sometimes, a building is just beyond repair. It is a developer’s job to discover a greater purpose for the site that far exceeds the community benefits of what was once there.
Developers face many challenges and are frequently stereotyped, but they are willing to take high risks to promote community growth and reward. The right developer will select a site design that is not only right on the inside but focuses attention to the exterior. Opposition to developers are often concerned about what the appearance of the building will be. Most developers don’t understand this, but this is the approach that Gaughan Companies takes.
A recent article in the Star Tribune looks into the increase in development in the Twin Cities. Contact one of our development or brokerage experts at Gaughan Companies, and let them put their proven skills and expertise to work for you on your next project.
