Residents of neighborhoods with plenty of leafy trees tend to have higher levels of psychological health and well-being. Living near a green is associated with health benefits, including lower blood pressure, reduced levels of stress and anxiety, and an increased sense of general well being. Research has even linked living near a green space with lower medical expenditures. LAKEHAUS is purpose built to get more people outdoors in green spaces.
LAKEHAUS residents want to feel like they can live in a place that’s really pampering and integrates their lifestyle of whole wellness.

Across the U.S., developers are spending more time and space on rooftop gardens and common grilling areas, decks and distinct fitness areas, as builders aim to bring tenants what they want, which is a healthy environment and a shared sense of community. The new LAKEHAUS residences in Uptown Minneapolis are excellent example of this trend in the Twin Cities area. It includes such features as healthy building materials, cleaning products, water and air quality and access to daylight and fitness facilities. The energy-efficient lighting, appliances, non-toxic cleaning supplies and air and water filters have had a noticeable effect.

Pets Need Wellness Too
For residents who work from home and need a break, or those who use their lunch hour to come home to walk Fido, the afternoons are a great time for a stroll around Uptown. Especially in the winter, which can lead to hibernating tendencies, a walk during the warmest and sunniest part of the day is never a bad idea. The adjacent Chain of Lakes is always filled with joggers, bikers and dog walkers even as temperatures start to drop; plus, there’s an excellent dog park along the edge of Lake of the Isles by the same name.
Residents with access to off-leash dog parks and pet-friendly green space or trails experience the joy of exercising with our pets or get the health and social benefits that come with it. That’s why making sure you make full use of the parks and trails surrounding LAKEHAUS can improve health through:
Interacting with others at the park can help build the relationships that bind us to our communities and each other — creating social capital. It’s not just people who need green space; pets do too. When dogs have a place to run and play, it can help keep them healthy, reduce anxiety or boredom, and stimulate their minds. Exercise is a key component of maintaining a healthy weight for your pet. Playing with other dogs at the park also helps improve your dog’s social skills.
When pets and people enjoy outdoor activity together, we both benefit. Beyond the health and companionship benefits for pets, dog owners are five times more likely to get to know people in their neighborhoods. That’s thanks in large part to – you guessed it – dog walking. People who walked their dog got at least 30 minutes of physical activity on more days a week than non-dog walkers. Plus, almost 60% of dog walkers feel safer when walking their dog. Dog parks provide a way for people to meet and exchange information with other dog owners and build relationships that extend beyond the park.
People and pets love parks, and pet-friendly green space is good for all of us. Please join the movement and help advocate for pets being part of the dialogue in green space, park and city planning. Together, we can make cities healthier and more pet-friendly, so everybody benefits.
The thing about Uptown is that there’s such a variety and diversity of things to do that it’s really all about you—it’s a highly walkable neighborhood that can practically provide whatever urban living experience it is you’re looking for.
