Big-D Midwest, Real Estate Equities and Kaas Wilson Architects recently broke ground on Vista Point—a multifamily, affordable housing unit developed by Real Estate Equities.

Located in Mahtomedi, MN, Vista Point, will be a 110-unit development comprised of one, two and three-bedroom units.  While the majority of units will be for those making 60%-80% AMI, 20% of the units will be rented at market rate. The property will feature an attractive exterior design with modern amenities and high-quality interior finishes, as well as in-unit laundry. Other features include a parking garage, fitness center, community room, playground and dog run.

“We are excited to continue this great partnership, as Vista Point marks our eighth project with Real Estate Equities and Kaas Wilson Architects,” said Big-D Midwest’s Sr. Vice President and Managing Director Cory Schubert.  “In these difficult economic times this group continues to find creative and cost-effective ways to build units that provide a market rate feel and are priced at an affordable rate for Mahtomedi residents.”

“Vista Point will offer the level of amenities and finishes you would find in new market-rate developments and will also feature many sustainable and energy-efficient design features such energy star appliances and low flow plumbing fixtures. We are thrilled to provide much needed affordable housing and to become part of a flourishing community in Mahtomedi,” said Real Estate Equities Managing Development Partner Patrick Ostrom.

The $27.5 million project was designed by Kaas Wilson Architects and is slated to be completed in summer of 2023. For more information, visit
