River North Senior Apartments

Construction Underway on River North Senior Housing

A new, 167-unit senior apartment building is under construction at the intersection of 109th Lane and Crooked Lake Boulevard.

The facility, located next to the Coon Rapids Ice Center, is expected to open in early 2017. The project represents a major step forward in development efforts along the Coon Rapids Boulevard corridor. The site previously contained an unused parking lot and two older houses.

River North is the second senior housing project to be constructed along Coon Rapids Boulevard in recent years. Autumn Glen Senior Living opened earlier this year about a mile to the west. More information about the River North Apartments is available at or by calling 763-762-4762.

New SuperAmerica in Port Riverwalk

A new SuperAmerica convenience store on the corner of Egret Boulevard and Coon Rapids Boulevard has opened. Located in the City’s Port Riverwalk redevelopment district, the new 3,500 square foot store includes a car wash and 16 fuel pumps. The store replaces an older car wash building on the site, which sat vacant for several years. SuperAmerica is also working with the City on constructing a new street that will provide access from the new store to Egret Boulevard next to Fire Station #1. The street will eventually be extended to the east along the south side of Al Flynn Park to serve future development in Port Riverwalk.
