Mixed-Use Center Planned for Twin Cities Suburb
Construction is underway on the 750,000-sf Fountains at Arbor Lakes mixed-use center in Maple Grove, Minn., about 15 miles northwest of Minneapolis. Situated on 101 acres of a former gravel mine, the $90 million development includes 23 buildings on 18 lots and three out-lots comprised of big-box retail, small- to medium-sized freestanding restaurant and retail sites, and two hotels, including one with an indoor water park. The project also proposes eight Main Street-style retail and office buildings. Opus Northwest LLC is the developer and design/builder, and KKE Architects is the architect on the project, which is scheduled to open this fall.
