We have only lives at The Island since the pandemic, so out of necessity I have not felt an overly strong sense of community. However, besides not interacting too much with neighbors I have absolutely loved my time here. All of the staff are wonderful.See More >

Bad place. Halls are a mess. Elevators stink. Workout room out of cleaning products and trash room is disgusting. I think the staff is awful. I have asked for cleaning and it is ignored. I will definitely be moving.

This is a very convenient andupscale residence with great walking trails. The drawback is the parking situation for guests and family unless you rent multiple spaces in the parking garage and who can afford that?

The Island at Carlson Center is like a retreat. The walking paths (open every day all year round) lead you past wildlife, natural greenery, wild flowers, and water. The Island brings a sense of peace and calmness amidst the bustling metropolis of Minneapolis.

Terrible, cheap washers were installed at the outset when the Island was built. That is why the rating dropped from a 5 to a 4. I don't like having to do my laundry elsewhere, especially for the price of the unit and the hype.

Overpriced Rent. Nice outdoor amenities. Worlds slowest Elevator. Apartment appliances are subpar and the washer specifically is not great. Maintenance staff is nice and super responsive. Main office could use some work on response timing and caring for their residents.

Hello, We appreciate your feedback and review of our community. It is important we hear from our residents about their experiences. We do take a lot of pride in providing a clean living environment for our new residents moving in. When there is too much damage and carpet cleaning isn't an option, we have no choice but to replace the carpet. We do require residents to take all of their belongings with them and clean when they move out so we also have to charge a fee to remove items that residents leave behind or for additional cleaning. Although we have no control over the lake near our community, we've only heard positive things about it, but we will take note and contact the appropriate entity if it becomes a problem. In addition, we do have access gates and cameras in our community. While we are lucky to live in a quiet area, we have provided video to assist the police in the past with auto burglaries that were occurring in the area. We valued your residency and we wish you the best of luck in your new home. Jamie W., Community Manager
