Minnesota Real Estate Journal Write Up
Getting to “wow” is the name of the game at the Concierge apartments in Richfield, Minn. The wow factor plays into just about every facet of the renovation, from the record breaking renovation of the mostly one bedroom apartments, to a complete and total reconstruction and rechristening of the old community “club room” as the Resort Center and Spa. “This 50- year-old property had great bones and was maintained, but due to its age and size, it needed substantial investment to bring this it into the 21st century,” says Erik Falkman, chief operating officer of Soderberg Apartment Specialists. “I think we have not only accomplished that goal, but have knocked it out of the park on many levels.”

Paul Ryan walks us through this incredible renovation project by Soderberg Apartment Specialists. We see the entire process from before and after shots and timelapse imagery. The Soderberg Apartment Specialists World Record Renovation Team set out to see how fast they could do a complete renovation of an apartment: new flooring, new windows, new stainless steel appliances, new cabinetry, new paint, new furniture, new lighting fixtures, new window treatments, new granite counter tops, everything.
The team was already working on a 300 unit complex in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota called Lake Pointe. The complex is getting a complete overhaul. Soderberg Apartment Specialists have been renovating apartment complexes like this for over 30 years, so they wanted to challenge their team to see how fast they could renovate one apartment safely.
