ThePOINTE Bloomington will have five stories and 133 units. It will be available for occupancy in spring of 2022. “Our second ThePOINTE development is in a great location to meet the needs of active seniors in Bloomington,” said Mark Nelson, executive vice president, residential development with United Properties. “As we see demand for senior living continue to grow, we’re confident ThePOINTE’s many amenities will draw strong interest.” United Properties’ first ThePOINTE location recently opened in Roseville. The new senior community will offer maintenance-free living for people 55-plus, with a variety of apartment sizes and floor plans. Units include one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den, two-bedroom, two-bedroom plus den, and three-bedroom floor plans. The rental fee structure is all-inclusive (with the exception of electricity), making it ideal for seniors looking to budget their monthly costs. ThePOINTE Bloomington will feature stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, underground heated parking and many lifestyle amenities, including a clubhouse, outdoor pool, art studio, fitness studio, workshop and outdoor kitchen. It is positioned between Normandale Lake and Hyland Lake Park Reserve, and the location is close to State Highway 100 and Interstate 494 for easy access to amenities such as the airport, medical facilities and shopping. ThePOINTE Bloomington will also feature an enclosed connection to the nearby Cherrywood Pointe, a United Properties-owned senior apartment community offering independent living, assisted living, memory care and enhanced care. This connection will offer ThePOINTE residents access to additional amenities such as Cherrywood Pointe’s pub and dining room. The project was designed by Kaas Wilson Architects, with interior design by Banko Design. The community will be constructed by Weis Builders and managed by Great Lakes Management.
