Riverdale Station Flats

New Apartment Development

Construction is underway on the Riverdale Station Flats, a large apartment development located next to the Riverdale Transit Station at 121st Lane & Northdale Boulevard.

This unique development features a four-story, 184-unit market-rate apartment building, a four-story, 71-unit mixed-income apartment building and a small retail component. Phase two of this project will include a senior apartment building.

Riverdale Station Flats groundbreaking

A groundbreaking event was held October 25, 2018 to celebrate this project which is several years in the making.

It’s the first new general occupancy apartment development in over a decade in the city of Coon Rapids, and it is the first transit-oriented development, conveniently located next to the Riverdale Transit Station featuring Northstar Commuter Rail service, nearby retail shopping opportunities and restaurants. The apartments will feature many amenities including high-end finishes, a dog run, playground equipment, underground parking, and walking paths. Minneapolis-based Sherman Associates is the project developer.

The smaller, 71-unit building is expected to be complete in late 2019 and the larger, 184-unit building is expected to be finished in early 2020.
