Our company culture is focused on providing our residents the best quality of life. Achieving this through technology while being environmentally friendly is important to our business and the communities we serve.

Norhart president Mike Kaeding today announced the grand opening of his first fully integrated “smart” apartment complex. Built over the past nine months, the 84-unit apartment building has state of the art technology built into all aspects of the apartment’s amenities allowing the renters control over their lights, thermostat, doors, electricity, gas, water and more. Residence can control and program these features to their custom preferences allowing them to receive notifications ranging from when the front door is opened to programming light settings on morning alarms.

This is the second apartment complex that Norhart manages that is equipped with smart technology. Their Emberwood Apartments in Blaine installed IoT functionality into their newest 30% of apartments. Gateway Green is Norhart’s first complex built with all apartment equipped with IoT technology. Residents from the Emberwood apartments report that their new awareness of utility usage not only saves time, but money as they are able to turn off lights or turn down apartment temperatures from the convenience of their phone.

“Our initial response from residents that are living in our smart apartments has been overwhelmingly positive," said Kaeding. “We built Gateway Green for the generation that loves their technology and is also seeking community. Our apartment complex offers a Pet Spa, Fitness Center, Game Room, Community Room, and underground parking garage. Our company culture is focused on providing our residents the best quality of life. Achieving this through technology while being environmentally friendly is important to our business and the communities we serve.”

All 84 units of the Gateway Green apartment complex are equipped with high speed internet. Residents choose from three connectivity options and service is available on the first day they move into the apartment. Gateway Green is also the first Norhart complex that will offer one-bedroom apartments. Existing Norhart Forest Lake apartments are two and three bedroom apartments.

Norhart is a Forest Lake construction and management company that owns and manages units throughout the Twin Cities of Minnesota. Founded in 1993, this multi-generational family owned company has built, remodeled and manages apartments equipped with the latest in technology allowing their renters apartment amenities that are cutting edge.
