Nature’s Refuge

Nature’s Refuge is the newest community under construction in Lino Lakes, Minnesota.  M/I Homes will be building Sixty-one single-family homes on 19-acres of this 95-acre site. As the name of the development suggests, nature preservation was a significant component of this project. Our goal for this project was to design this neighborhood to meet the community’s growing needs while also maintaining the natural environment; this includes the over 900 trees that the developers will preserve during the project’s construction.
