ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Rochester continues to grow and so does the need for housing.
New developments are popping up all over the city, and we caught up with management from the Pines apartments on Friday to learn what their new plans are for expansion.
The Pines is owned by a company called Regency Multifamily, and they announced that they’ve purchased land for a development they’re calling The Woods of Rochester.
They bought 55 acres of land, and plan to build 600 luxury apartments and a 6,000 square foot clubhouse.
The clubhouse will have a theater and a golf simulator, while the new development will have indoor and outdoor pools and more workout areas.
The land is located east of 50th Avenue NW and north of Alpha Parkway NW.
“It just so happened that the Pines had acreage behind it for sale and so it just made sense. It’s just an amazing opportunity, and we purchased this property and there was just so much potential with it,” said Community Manager Paige Williams. “And we really decided that taking it to another level and just expanding on that. And we’re going to be modeling it after the Pines itself, just making some improvements along the way.”
All residents will have access to the buildings to take advantage of the new amenities.
Right now all these plans for development are pending approval from the city.
Building construction is expected to begin in 2019.
