They are really nice, especially for MN (more similar to Chicago rentals). We went in yesterday and ended up leasing a terrace unit. They and the penthouse floors have upgraded finishes and appliances with slide in gas ranges, large capacity French door refrigerators, range hoods, microwaves hidden in the island, tiled tub and showers, frameless glass shower enclosures, offset tiled bathroom floors, soaking tubs, customizable master closet organizers, upgraded lighting, hardware, Berber carpeting in bedrooms, and some other stuff that I forget. Many have fireplaces, powder rooms, dens, and larger terraces or balconies. Ours will have a terrace larger than some apartments I've lived in in New York. Surprisingly, except for the large penthouses on the top few floors, rents are very similar to other recently opened "luxury" buildings from what I could tell.
All units have tiled showers (no fiberglass, thank god), nicer finishes than in most rental buildings here and the choice of "classic" (dark brown cabinets and floors) or "signature" finishes (gray/black floors, white cabinets). The cabinets could be better quality from what I saw but they weren't bad.
Parking is extra, ranging from $195-$295/month. I didn't see a map of the garage yet so am not sure what the difference is for. With light rail and hourly car options, we probably won't lease another car when our lease is finished.
Storage cages are available pretty reasonably, from $40 - $65/month. I don't remember the sizes.
One question, I have followed many of the threads here for a couple years but have never posted. Why is the word l u x u r y starred out???
