The Amber Fields development resides on a 435-acre parcel of the 7,700-acre UMore Park property in Rosemount, Minnesota. Alliant’s initial task on this project was the update of the master plan for the parcel. This work involved significant workshops with City staff, and a desire to honor ideas generated in previous master plans completed over the last 15 years.
The resulting master plan of the development identifies at its heart, a 60-acre park. This green space will be surrounded by a variety of moderate and high-density residential properties, senior housing, and a commercial node.
The primary green corridor is envisioned as a multifaceted amenity providing for the immediate community and the greater regional area. Specific concepts feature nearly five miles of local paths, trails, and sidewalks with connectivity to a future regional trail located on the adjacent parcel. With the open space, public and commercial centerpieces in place, the remainder of the site area is dedicated to a variety of housing options. Higher densities have been concentrated on major intersections beginning with apartments and senior housing at the main entry. Townhomes are located at access points on the east and a future road on the west with single-family lots located within the remainder of the site.
