Aeon’s History

Creating and sustaining quality affordable housing that strengthen lives and communities.

Aeon was founded in 1986 to replace 350 units of housing that were demolished to build the Minneapolis Convention Center. At that time, Aeon’s board of directors committed to “do affordable housing better than it’s been done before.” That commitment has led to nearly three decades of passionate commitment and efforts to make the affordable housing industry better.

Our first development, Buri Manor, provided 38 units of single-room occupancy apartments for minimum wage earners. Thirty years later, we continue to build quality affordable homes that connect residents to stabilizing resources.

We are committed to providing affordable rent in safe and secure environments with responsive property management. We’re also committed to developing an overall respectful, caring culture throughout Aeon apartment homes and across our organization. Driven by the principle that everyone deserves a home, we continue to expand our work in order to work with families and individuals struggling to afford housing throughout the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
