After The Fire

April 10, 2014 5:09 pm

We were unfortunate enough to have a fire in one of our apartment communities. It is incredibly important that we are all vigilant in protecting ourselves and our neighbors from damage to both our physical health and emotional health when we live in such close proximity.

Please be careful. This is what can happen if you leave your stove unattended for even a short period of time:

For those of you effected by the fire,  here is some important information on how to get help if you need it.

Tomorrow we will be posting a refresher on fire safety for all tenants to review for their own safety and that of their neighbors.

We are here to help all of you effected by the fire. Please let us know if there is more that we could be doing.

Thanks For The Great Reviews!

I have lived at Southwirth for over a year, and we have had nothing but great service and excellent management here. Kate takes great care of us, and John is an awesome and courteous maintenance man.

Twin Cities #3 On HuffPo’s Happiest, Healthiest Metros!

September 5, 2013 4:35 pm

We are pretty proud to live in the Twin Cities, but it is always nice to be acknowledged as  a great place to live! Today, in the Huffington Post, the metro area was number three on the list of its’ “Happiest, Healthiest Cities” – only being topped by San Jose, CA and Salt Lake City, UT.

It seems that our healthy lifestyles are paying dividends in making the Cities a great place to live and be healthy:

It’s not the rustic Nordic diet that catapulted the Twin Cities to heart-healthy superstardom. Credit city planners, local doctors, and area hospitals — and it’s been decades in the making. “It’s part of the fabric of our work here,” says Courtney Jordan Baechler, M.D., a cardiologist at the Penny George Institute for Health and Healing. “People have spent decades boosting heart health by making the area more bikeable, for example, and offering cholesterol and blood pressure screenings to everyone.”

Minneapolis Tops NerdWallet’s Best City For Recreation List!

August 14, 2013 5:12 pm

Okay, we love Minneapolis, but it is nice for the city to be acknowleged as the best place for recreation in the US. St. Paul came in third (falling short of Portland, OR). In both summer and winter, both cities provide almost limitless activities for its’ residents.

Congratulations to both cities!

 

From NerdWallet:

Minneapolis offers a bounty of recreational opportunities. You can lace up your ice skates and hit the ice at The Depot, an indoor skating rink inside a restored railroad depot. Avid skateboarders can check out the six skate parks in Minneapolis, while golfers can tee up on one of seven courses. There are even disc golf courses for Frisbee fans! Hiking, biking and skiing trails can be found at Fort Snelling State Park, an historic military site. Whether you’re looking to start a fall sports league or go camping for the weekend, Minneapolis has the perfect accommodations. The University of Minnesota runs youth programs for area children, as well.

Mother’s Day In The Twin Cities

May 9, 2013 4:44 pm

Are you looking for a fun way to celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday? Our editor put together a list of where to get your brunch reservations, order your flowers or send a gift if you can’t see your mother on her special day!

Mother’s Day Brunch: The Twin Cities are full of great places to have brunch on Sunday. Reservations are a must on one of the busiest brunch days of the year. You can find the perfect spot on Open Table (and get earn points toward free meals)! If you are going to Mom’s house, why not stop at Cafe Arnaud for a special treat.

Flowers: Yes, you can literally phone or click it in with the standard FTD bouquet, but for something a little more special you might want to use A Johnson & Sons or Fleur de Lis.

If you can’t be with your mother, there are some great e-tailers to get a gift to her in time. One of our favorites Dragonfly Cakes has beautiful petit fours for the occasion or you can send your love in the form of an Amazon gift card – for everything from books to electronics!

Most of all enjoy the date and celebrate the mothers in your life!
