River Oaks Landing, an apartment complex for adults 55 and up, is set on the picturesque Otter Tail River in Fergus Falls, Minnesota.
The Housing Challenge/Need included ample entry level housing (both single family
and multifamily), the need to open a mid-to-upper-end single family housing stock, and attracting workforce/families.
In early 2016, the developer approached City with concept that would achieve this goal. The project included 24 independent living rental units for adults 55 and up, a $4.2 million total project cost. The goal was to create a higher-end product not currently being offered.
The project is now open and leasing.
