September 25, 2017

Getting a look at some the cities’ best lofts, apartments and condos just got a whole lot easier.  The Luxury Loft and Condo Tour by Midwest Home gets you inside to see some of the newest trends in condo living. Even if you’re not looking to move, it’s a great way to get ideas for your own home.  

There are all sorts of places to see on the tour. Reporter Emily Engberg goes inside Abiitan Mill City in Minneapolis.

This development is geared toward the older adult looking to get into city living. The 55 and older community is in a great location. It’s just steps from the Guthrie Theater. It’s also close to other entertainment, shopping and all sorts of restaurants.

Luxury Loft and Condo Tour is October 6 -8, 2017. The event on the 6th is for a VIP Experience. It includes hors d’oeuvres, drinks and early previews. It also gives you access to the lofts, condos and apartments on Saturday and Sunday.

Abiitan Mill City Turns Aging into Freeflowing Luxury

As the current millennium dawned, Minneapolis’s Mill District underwent a radical renaissance. For decades it had lain more or less dormant after decades as the world’s largest flour producer. That renaissance delivered new life to those pre-existing buildings, turning disused warehouses into loft homes and office spaces, restaurants and condos. And a similar renaissance is energizing some of the Mill District’s newest residents, those who hang their hats within a senior living community that takes its name from the Ojibwe word “to occupy” — Abiitan.
