Arbor Ridge: Expect the Best

Stillwater based Summit Management is proud to announce its newest apartment community—Arbor Ridge Luxury Apartments.  Arbor Ridge brings luxury living to Forest Lake and is conveniently located on 8th Street SE, just north of Scandia Trail/Highway 97.  Arbor Ridge is expected to welcome its first residents on September 1st, 2017.

This community is the first building in the area for developer Mark Lambert, although he is not a novice to new construction building with his latest, BlueStone Flats, being completed in Duluth in June of 2016. “Arbor Ridge targets a more traditional multifamily market with 1 and 2 bedroom luxury apartments offering more amenities and fewer apartments,” Lambert said. At over 50% leased already, we are seeing a great mix of multi-generational residents.

With six unique floorplans, featuring 73 apartments, there is something for everyone.  Whether you are looking for a one or two-bedroom home, Arbor Ridge will meet your needs.  At Arbor Ridge you will experience big city amenities for a fraction of the price with rents starting at $810 per month.

Arbor Ridge Luxury Apartments feature high-end contemporary finishes and open floorplans, so you can feel like it was designed just for you. Kitchens are skillfully constructed with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, tile backsplashes, and custom cabinetry.  Residents will also enjoy nine-foot ceilings and oversized windows, with roller shades, lending to a bright and open living space.  In addition, the apartments feature wood plank flooring in the kitchen and living areas, designer carpet in the bedrooms, and Energy Star certified washer and dryer in every apartment.  Most apartments will have screened in balconies, perfect for enjoying some time outside! 

Arbor Ridge has a variety of amenities that appeal to a diverse group of residents from experienced renters to those who are new to apartment life.  Residents can enjoy the community room featuring a full kitchen, seating areas, large gathering table, and space to relax in front of a fireplace.  If you would rather gather outside, there is an outdoor patio with a grill and fire pit.  For those of you who enjoy the finer things in life, there are other community amenities to take advantage of including a massage chair room, a package concierge system, and covered parking in a detached garage. 

Summit Management is setting a trend for future fitness areas.  Arbor Ridge offers a unique outdoor fitness area with six machines intended for both resident and general public use.  However, there is also an indoor fitness center available for resident use, which is especially appealing during the cold Minnesota months. The indoor fitness area will feature both cardio and strength training equipment.

For pet owners, Arbor Ridge is an ideal community to call home. Surrounding greenspace and nearby trails provide an ideal space for your pet to run and play without having to leave the neighborhood.  There is also a pet spa available for those spoiled pets who love to be pampered.

Arbor Ridge is an exciting new community that appeals to a wide variety of renters.  Summit Management’s professional Property Management and Maintenance team will make residents feel right at home.

“It’s got a little different makeup – older residents who are interested in a transition from their traditional home to those who are moving into their first apartment that’s nice, luxurious, maintenance free and still near the neighborhoods they grew up or lived in” Lambert said. He found that there’s a need in Forest Lake for the type of housing that Arbor Ridge provides.

In addition to Arbor Ridge, Lambert’s Stillwater Minnesota based company owns and manages several properties throughout the state of Minnesota. From student housing, luxury apartments manufactured home communities, and a local lake resort, their focus is providing residents with affordable housing in great communities.
