Taft attorneys Greg Brenny and Brieanna Maershbecker were pleased to celebrate with their client, United Properties, in the culmination of several months of development planning that resulted in the Aug. 3 groundbreaking of Amira Minnetonka, United Properties’ newest 55-plus active adult rental community and the first to be marketed under the new brand name, Amira.
Taft helped United Properties navigate the development process, including pre-development planning; purchase; analyzing and amending existing complex land use documentation involving several parties; assisting with municipal interactions; and obtaining governmental approvals, all of which led to the groundbreaking for Amira Minnetonka.
Upon completion in 2023, Amira Minnetonka will boast six floors and 186 units, set in a serene environment featuring lifestyle amenities that include a state-of-the-art golf simulator, an outdoor pool and hot tub, community gardens, art and fitness studios, an expansive community room, and a sky lounge.
