We love what we do!

We invest in commercial buildings in prime suburban locations in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Metropolitan area. Sometimes they need a little love, sometimes they need a lot. We turn them into high-quality, operationally superior buildings for tenants who want a better experience. Our goal is to create exceptional spaces, provide skilled property maintenance and an unsurpassed level of property management and leasing — resulting in an incomparable experience for our tenants.


The AtWater Group is a firm of commercial real estate professionals with a long history of experience in investment, development, management and leasing. Our team’s collective experience includes management and leasing of over 5,000,000 square feet of commercial office, retail, and industrial properties.
