Some people love looking up and touring new apartments in Minneapolis to live in, while others completely dread it. No matter which category you fall into, it’s helpful to have a list of the best apartments gathered in one convenient place.

Minneapolis is a large metro area with many exciting neighborhoods to live in. It can be difficult to narrow down the best neighborhoods and top-choice apartments, so that’s why we did it for you. The last thing you want at the end of a long apartment search is to end up with a shady management company or a run-down apartment unit.

At Bigos Management, we lease the best apartments in the Twin Cities metro, and here are 5 of our favorite apartments in Minneapolis.

1) The Center of It All: Ridgewood Arches

Centrally located between Downtown and Uptown Minneapolis, Ridgewood Arches is the perfect apartment for people who want to take advantage of the whole of Minneapolis. The building is located near highway 94, making it easy to visit Northeast Minneapolis, Saint Paul, and nearby suburbs. And if you don’t have a car, this location has plenty of public bus lines accessible.

It’s hard to miss this beautiful brick building with climbing ivy scaling the exterior. Just wait till fall when the ivy turns colors, turning the entire exterior of the building into an autumnal dream. The interior units are just as appealing, with both hardwood and carpet, built-in breakfast nooks, and large windows.
