Avidor communities enable its residents to live a maintenance-free, ‘lock-and-leave’ lifestyle with the added advantage of choosing what is valuable to them via a-la-carte services, which can be selected when and how residents want them. Lifestyle and exceptional customer service are the key pillars of Avidor communities, which come to life through planned trips and tours, continental breakfasts, weekly a-la-carte meals, social hours and activities, cooking classes and wine tastings.
“There was a shortage of adequate for-rent 55+ senior housing options in Minnetonka and Avidor provides a luxury, programming-rich, age-restricted community that will meet the demand from local empty-nesters who are looking to downsize from their homes,” said Mary Boehmler, a senior associate with High Street Residential. “Avidor Minnetonka serves the baby boomer’s growing desire to live in an urban environment, makes economic sense by offering affordable monthly payments, unlocks home equity, and provides a rich social experience.”
Located at the northeast corner of Plymouth Road and Ridgedale Drive, Avidor Minnetonka residents will benefit from numerous walkable and drivable amenities, including various dining, shopping, recreation and entertainment options. The community is situated in the heart of Minnetonka, located along I-394, which allows for under a 15-minute commute to downtown Wayzata and downtown Minneapolis. As part of the ongoing revitalization and re-imagining of the Ridgedale area, the City of Minnetonka will develop a new, two-acre community park adjacent to Avidor Minnetonka. The city is also reconstructing Ridgedale Drive between Plymouth Road and Interstate 394. Improvements include new pavement, roundabouts, new landscaped medians, reconstructed sidewalks, new streetlights and a new multi-use trail.
