Mad about real estate

Eden Prairie Apartments

Located 12 miles southwest from downtown Minneapolis, the city of Eden Prairie in Hennepin County is the 12th largest city in the state of Minnesota.  Situated just upstream from the confluence of the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers, this city has a population of 55,100. Just like other cities in Minnesota, Eden Prairie is also mainly composed of lakes and ponds coupled together with 1,300 acres of open spaces. There are also more than 170 miles of multi-user trails with the total coverage of all parks in Eden Prairie being about 2,250 acres.

In the past, Eden Prairie was mainly a residential city but today it has grown to include more than 2,200 businesses and other organizations. Some of the businesses located here are MTS Systems Corporation, Starkey Laboratories, Digital River, Xiotech and ADC Telecommunications among others. There are also two Fortune 500 Company Headquarters viz. C.H. Robinson Worldwide and Supervalu located here. The fact that the Eden Prairie is also home to the Eden Prairie Center, a mall constructed in 1976 and the Minnesota Vikings, makes it appeal to children, teenagers and sports enthusiasts alike.

Apartments in Eden Prairie are designed by some of the biggest names in real estate and so all residents here are assured of all the needed housing facilities and services. Most Eden Prairie apartments are located in districts within the vicinity of schools and colleges. Since Eden Prairie operates nine schools, every district comes under at least one school. In other words, residents here are not only assured of being located close to business and other commercial centers, sporting complexes, malls and recreational centers, but also to superior education provided by different universities. Travelling is also not a problem here as Eden Prairie is one of the hubs for the SouthWest Transit which serves public transportation to adjoining suburbs. Most tourists and new residents that move here prefer to rent apartments instead of purchasing them as these apartments start at affordable rates of $500 per month. Considering that virtually every house here would be located next to some important business center, makes it no surprise that Eden Prairie was elected as the 10th best American city to live in by a recent study.
