Silver Lake Village is a mixed-use development in the city of St. Anthony, Minnesota, United States. It was constructed beginning in 2004 as a $150 million plan to replace Apache Plaza, an aging enclosed mall.[1] Its design is meant to resemble a "walkable community", as its development includes housing, shopping, dining, and other services.[2] Its name is derived from Silver Lake, located just north of the development, and from St. Anthony's nickname of "St. Anthony Village".

The mall is located along Silver Lake Road, north of 37th Ave NE. It is served by Metro Transit routes 4, 25, and 801.[3][4][5]

Housing[edit]

Silver Lake Village has a number of choices, including traditional apartments, condominiums, and cottage-style homes.[6] Most of this housing is new construction since 2004, but some properties, such as the Equinox Apartments, were constructed in the 1970s in the era of the Apache Plaza.

Shopping[edit]

The center is anchored by a Wal-Mart on the south end and a Cub Foods supermarket at the north. Between the two major retailers are smaller buildings with other stores found in strip malls, including Radio Shack, GameStop, and GNC. The city of St. Anthony operates a liquor store in the complex.[7]

Wal-Mart intends to close the Silver Lake Village location shortly after the new SuperCenter opens in neighboring Roseville.[8]

Dining[edit]

Silver Lake Village is also home to various restaurants. The complex includes Chipotle, Leeann Chin, Smashburger, and Caribou Coffee. A Culver's is adjacent to the development also.

Services[edit]

Located in the mall are other services, such as a Verizon Wireless retailer, salon, including a number of bank branches and health clinics.[9]

Entertainment[edit]

Salo Park, named in honor of St. Anthony's sister-city of Salo, Finland, is located along the eastern edge of the complex, and its amphitheater is home to summer concerts.[10] There are walking paths located near the park as well.
