Area Strengths

The Rochester area has a variety of significant and valued strengths that strongly support the potential for success of a real estate community fund.

The General Partners believe the area is well suited for real estate investment opportunities. Rochester and the surrounding communities are home to a variety of well-respected businesses. The Rochester MSA serves as a regional transportation hub serving southeastern Minnesota, northern Iowa, and western Wisconsin with vital road, rail, and air service links to the entire nation and foreign destinations.

There are considerable opportunities for redevelopment with additional areas for new development in key parts of Olmsted county. In addition, the Rochester area offers access to a great education and park and trail system.

Our goal is to expand & leverage economic development initiatives, strengthen regional connectivity, and create a vibrant and dynamic area to live, work, and invest.
