Living in a studio apartment means you won’t have separate rooms for sleeping and eating, much less a guest room or office. But that doesn’t mean your space has to feel small, cramped, or that you can’t be living in complete luxury with a single room, kitchenette, and bathroom. After you see these fabulous studio apartments Minneapolis, MN, has on the market, you’ll be ready to trade in your extra bedroom for extra features and lower costs.
Ranging from 550 to 730 square feet, studios at Central Park West come in a variety of layouts that are set up much like a one-bedroom apartment. The living room and kitchen share a space, while the bedroom, with sliding door for privacy, is on the other side of a 7-foot wall. Nearly brand-new this apartment community is in St. Louis Park, near Uptown. You might need a car — or to rely on public transportation — if you live there, but it has convenient highway access and is near several stores and restaurants. Each apartment is pet-friendly and spacious, with huge windows, wood floors, and stainless steel appliances. The building itself offers a pet grooming station, pool, putting green, rooftop patio, fire pit, pub room, cabanas, club house, and a volleyball court, so you would never have to leave to find either entertainment or somewhere to relax. And there’s also a guest suite available — no two-bedroom apartment necessary.
These studios are a great match for pet owners. Although they don’t accept puppies under six months old, they do have a pet park on-site and welcome most breeds under 75 pounds — and you can spread that weight limit across two pups, if you’d like. As some of the finest studio apartments Minneapolis, MN, has to offer, The Vintage on Selby is built with upscale renters in mind, which you can tell immediately from the black-and-white tile floor, grand staircase, paneled walls, and welcome desk in the lobby. The units themselves have in-unit laundry; stylish lighting, cabinetry, and patterned backsplash in the kitchen; plus stainless steel appliances and wood floors. Common areas include a fitness center, yoga studio, courtyard, rooftop patio with fire pit and pool, and a lounge with a pool table.
Within steps of the Lake Calhoun North Beach, just minutes from Uptown, these studios come with an incredible amount of space, which includes four closets and a pantry. Lake Calhoun offers in-unit laundry, clubroom, an indoor and outdoor pool, business center, fitness center, and — as their most unique amenity — an on-site car wash. Near miles of trails, the location of these pet-friendly apartments means you’ll always have a beautiful place to exercise your dog, and your cat will adore the oversized windows (and maybe even the patio, under a watchful eye).
The Paxon studio apartments are in the heart of the Warehouse District, an eclectic, very walkable Minneapolis neighborhood riddled with reminders of the city’s industrial past. In fact, the Paxon itself lies on the corner of what was formerly Implement Row — where the area’s many farmers would obtain their large equipment. Today, that corner is packed with luxury, by way of a sauna, pool, yoga studio, and fitness center. And at the Paxon, you won’t even notice a missing bedroom, because you have a built-in sleeping alcove that provides privacy and a separate space that many renters love.
