Parkway off Central has seen a favorable reception in its early days. According to Brenda Hvambsal with Steven Scott, the management company for the development, “feedback from prospects and new residents has been very positive. The building is 35% leased and traffic continues to be very strong.”

Brad Schafer, President of Schafer Richardson, stated “Schafer Richardson is excited to deliver a Class A housing option in the City of Blaine. Like many Twin Cities suburbs, Blaine is seeing stable growth, and the market is responding well to one of the city’s first new apartment complexes in 20 years. The Parkway is a nice complement to recent single family home development in the city, and residents can take advantage of high quality schools, parks, bike trails, and other recreational amenities.” Schafer also expressed gratitude to the project team for their diligent work to keep the project on schedule and within budget. Schafer Richardson’s Project Manager on the development was Katie Anthony, Amcon Construction was the architect and general contractor, and Steven Scott Management is the leasing agent and property manager for the building.
