Print this pageGateway Community


The Gateway Community was planned and executed for a private commercial client. Completed in 2000, Gateway is a community planned to augment its member’s desire for an integrated lifestyle and a serene living environment. Retail, residential and work opportunities are thoughtfully located around the headwaters of Battle Creek Lake. The wetlands, ponds and creeks create a natural buffer between uses that are knit together by a trail system. The trail allows residents to move between home, work and play without ever getting into their automobile.


70 acres of raw land just east of 694 on 10th Street North in Oakdale, MN.
