“The HIT’s investment in Anoka will create family-supporting jobs for our members. HIT continues to help with pandemic recovery by delivering high quality senior housing and high quality jobs in Minnesota.” —Dan McConnell, Business Manager, Minneapolis Building and Construction Trades Council


The AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust (HIT) is helping to finance the $34.7 million new construction of The American Cooperative of Anoka (“American Cooperative”) located in Anoka, Minnesota. Overlooking the fairways of Green Haven Gold Course, the project will create 87 new units of housing for seniors 62+. Project amenities will include a fitness studio, do-it-yourself workshop, billiards room and lounge, spacious outdoor patio, community room, guest suite, and heated underground garage. In the units, residents will find modern finishes such as granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances. The American Cooperative also offers convenient access to dining, shopping, and recreational activities in downtown Anoka and at Green Haven Golf Course.


As part of its $1 billion Midwest@Work Initiative, the HIT is providing $20.9 million in financing through the purchase of Ginnie Mae construction loan certificates and a permanent loan certificate. Since 1991, the HIT has financed 100 projects in Minnesota and 71 projects in the Twin Cities, all built 100% with union construction labor.


In addition to generating the union jobs, tax revenue and other economic impacts shown above, American Cooperative will provide high quality housing for area seniors. Located close to downtown Anoka, the project is well served by public transportation.
