The Carver MN City Council unanimously selected Shingobee Real Estate Company to redevelop a former bus garage property at its May meeting. Shingobee’s proposal is for construction of a 40-60 unit senior housing facility.


“We’re excited for the opportunity and look forward to working with the city of Carver and moving forward,” Jon Fahning, Shingobee’s vice president of real estate development, said.

Shingobee will begin immediately with a market study to evaluate the demand for various types of senior living in the area. The proposed facility will be comprised of independent living, assisted living, memory care, and/or skilled nursing care, within a 50,000-75,000 square foot, two-story structure.


Providing senior housing has been identified as a goal by the City Council, for diversifying the city’s housing stock. Shingobee’s plan is to provide a product that the community embraces as their own and demonstrates to others in the region what the city of Carver represents as part of their development strategy.


A fall start is planned for construction, and the site development and building construction will take approximately one year.
