Michel Commercial Real Estate is pleased to present an exclusive listing for the sale of The Cliffs of Minnetonka (the “The Cliffs”), a sprawling 456-unit apartment community. This rare offering is for sale for the first time. Built in 1985, this community features spacious units, open concept living, in-unit washers and dryers (322 units), heated underground parking, and resort-style amenities.

Downtown Minneapolis is less than ten miles away via direct route on Interstate 394, which is less than a block from The Cliffs’ entrance. The Cliffs of Minnetonka is a value-add investment opportunity and is well positioned for accelerated rent growth through interior upgrades in the apartment units. The property is 96% occupied and over $1.5MM in capital improvements have been made to the common areas within the last year. Offered free and clear of existing debt, this property is a high yield investment opportunity when coupled with today’s attractive financing options. The Cliffs of Minnetonka is a rare jewel of a property that was built to be a showstopper and is located in a high barrier of entry market with easy access to top employment sectors, shopping, and freeways.
