Arbor Lakes

The Shoppes at Arbor Lake

The suburban community of Maple Grove adopted an ambitious plan to transform several thousand acres of former gravel pits to a retail, residential, office, and civic development known as Arbor Lakes. Sambatek was selected by Opus Northwest to provide site design, civil engineering, and land surveying throughout the life of this signature development project.

The development, which functions as Maple Grove’s city center, includes a pedestrian Main Street environment, lakes, paths, and parks. Significant challenges included grading, drainage, water quality protection, and landscaping.
