Our residents appreciate the extras we provide. As owners and managers of our properties, we take the time needed to enhance the resident experience by renovated and upgrading our buildings. Yes, even the laundry rooms!
At Home Apartments is unique in many respects to other property management companies. We own our buildings and that pride shows. We frequently evaluate the condition and aesthetics of our properties. We do this to make our residents’ living experience as enjoyable as possible. This doesn’t stop at our apartment units themselves. For example: One overlooked aspect of many historic apartment buildings is their laundry and storage area. They are usually located in the basement or garden level, neglected for years and often forgotten.
We realized many years ago that these common areas and shared spaces should be celebrated and upgraded equally to the private living areas. Therefore, we’ve taken our historic laundry rooms and completely re-designed them to be just as inviting and comfortable as our newly renovated apartments. This starts with upgraded plumbing and electrical. Then – new drywall, windows, and a refinished floor. From there we install cabinets for storage and granite countertops for clothes folding space and easy clean-up. To finish it off we apply a fresh coat of paint. When space allows we include stainless steel folding tables, as well.
If we’re lucky, there will be space for a book-share library and a bulletin board for notes and news. We’re so happy to improve these rooms for the residents who call these beautiful buildings home.
The 36th Annual National Night Out was held on Tuesday, August 6, 2019. In St. Paul alone over 37 thousand people attend events in their neighborhoods. It’s a chance for people to meet their neighbor and, in some cases, chat with local law enforcement personnel. Communities provide food and promote the special event to bring people out of their homes and apartments to socialize. A similar program in Minnesota is promoted in each county and is known as Night to Unite. There is great comfort in knowing who lives next door and our society feels more secure when folks band together with a cause – like safe neighborhoods. The addition of food ties it all together as a social gathering.
Many of our At Home Apartments communities took advantage of this national event to celebrate their residents and mingle with staff. Waterford Townhomes in Eagan invited local police to stop by for a visit. The Jade Lane Estates leasing and maintenance team served burgers on the grill. And BBQs were a big hit with lawn games at Oxford Apartments in St. Paul.
We’re happy to have a variety of rental communities in the Twin Cities metro and proud to see our leasing and management offices invest the time and energy it takes to sponsor National Night Out events in their neighborhoods. (Pictured above: the Jade Lane Estates maintenance team.)
Kids that aren’t in school during the summer need lunch! The Mobile Lunch Box brings the food to them in Dakota County -driven by The Open Door Pantry and the donations they receive. We wanted to help and our summer Food Drive has now expanded to 13 leasing offices.
It started as a desire to help The Mobile Lunch Box program in Dakota County. With six of the At Home Apartments’ properties located there, it seemed like a great fit for our residents and staff to help make a difference. Once we learned how great the need was to bring lunches to the kids that were not in school, we created a task force and set a date for a food drive. We wanted to allow our residents and staff the opportunity to donate kid-friendly foods that The Open Door Pantry would distribute through their Mobile Lunch Box bus.
Theresa Stokes, Community Relations Coordinator for The Open Door Pantry, stated, “The Mobile Lunch Box program is one of our innovative programs. We have partnered with ISD 191 and 196 in certain locations and other sites are ours alone. We have used feedback from local police departments and school officials to help us target the “at need” neighborhoods that would benefit from a Mobile Lunch Box visit. Additionally, we are the largest food shelf in Dakota County and our specialty is food. We are open 5 days a week and 2 evenings to get food to those who need it most. The partnership of At Home Apartments in Dakota County with any food drive or fund drive support, would see that resourcing go right back to our communities.”
What started with a few Dakota County properties has now expanded to 13 of our leasing offices in the Twin Cities metro area. While we gather food for The Mobile Lunchbox in Dakota County, in the month of July we will also be collecting non-perishable food items for other area food shelves in the Second Harvest Heartland network. This is an exciting opportunity to make a positive impact in each of our communities.
Summer donations fuel The Mobile Lunch Box as it delivers over 2,000 fresh and healthy meals to children in low-income neighborhoods who struggle to find enough food when school is out of session. – The Open Door Pantry

Meeting a need. There has not been a new multi-housing development in Mendota Heights, Minnesota for 30 years. We are proud to be a part of a new construction project which will include two nearby commercial buildings, ideal for a restaurant, coffee shop, and retail businesses. Inspired by the surrounding community, the yet-to-be-named project will be near slopes of lush green hills and flowing rivers. The apartment building will offer 139 one and two-bedroom apartment homes. Plans are for an opening in the summer of 2018 in Mendota Heights, MN.

Today, one in 10 of our neighbors lives with daily hunger. One in six children in Minnesota is at risk of hunger. Seniors and post-secondary students are among the rising numbers of those in need of help.
As a company, we are excited to participate in a Food & Fund Drive supporting Second Harvest Heartland, the Upper Midwest’s largest hunger-relief organization.
There are two ways to participate and donate.
Staff and residents can bring physical donations in to At Home management/leasing offices. Our physical goal is to collect 400 lbs of donations across the entire company.
Go online and make a donation. Our online goal is to raise $2000. Together let's make a difference and DO good.
