The Lyric at Carleton Place

The Lyric at Carleton Place is an exceptional new luxury apartment residence that celebrates the cultural richness of the Twin Cities. Conveniently located on the Central Corridor, the Lyric is midway between downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul. The newest addition to Carleton Place Artist Lofts, The Lyric expands this exciting artist community to anyone who values urban living and welcomes creativity, artistry, and community.

The Lyric is comprised of two buildings connected by a link that creates a gateway to the interior parking court and amphitheater. The 171 luxury apartment homes feature oversized windows, open floor plans with sliding barn doors, top notch finishes, and huge private balconies and patios. An abundance of traditional and art-focused amenities truly make this building unique. At the ground level these include an outdoor amphitheater, indoor performance lab complete with lights, sound, and control room, community room, fitness center, conference room and art gallery. Additionally, the rooftop is home to an additional community room, outdoor sun deck, grilling terrace, movie theater, spa, sauna, solarium and individual gardening plots for resident use.

Designed with LEED standards in mind, this urban redevelopment was created on an existing brownfield site, is on a major bus line, and is located at a light rail stop. It employs a 4 pipe boiler system for heating and cooling efficiency, energy efficient appliances, sustainable product finishes, shading devices, lighting controls and native plantings to create a building that will stand the test of time.
