There’s a giant hole in the ground along Highway 3 next to the Steeple Center and a giant mound of dirt next to that. Both mark the long awaited progress on The Rosemount: Senior Living at Steeple Center.

Spokeswoman Nicole Claeson said the goal is to have construction on the senior housing facility, which is being developed by the Makado Group, done in November and have residents move in around Thanksgiving.


The facility will be operated by Augustana Care, a non-profit housing and health care provider for older adults.

The 130,000 sq. ft. building will include 40 independent-living apartments, 21 assisted-living apartments, 12 care suites, 18 memory care units and 1 respite care unit. The units will range in size from 350 sq. ft. in memory care to 1,100 sq. ft. apartment suites.


Additionally, The Rosemount will feature a number of amenities including a wellness center, library, salon, massage and aromatherapy suite, bistro, children’s play area and memory care garden.

To help residents live full lives, programming will also be offered. The facility will be linked to the Steeple Center, which will offer arts and education programs as well as events. The city of Rosemount owns and operates the Steeple Center.


“Linking to The Steeple Center and all of their programming is a win all around,” said Mark Appelbaum of the Makado Group, The Rosemount’s developer. “The city supports and is supported by a vibrant older community and the extended community also benefits.”


While construction continues, Claeson anticipates marketing materials will be available soon.


The Rosemount will have a sales office and model apartment in The Steeple Center. Call 651-322-4222 or visit for more information.
