History & Awards

Our Story

Aeon was founded in 1986 to replace 350 apartment homes that were demolished to build the Minneapolis Convention Center. Our first development, Buri Manor, provided 38 homes for low-wage workers. Driven by our belief that everyone deserves a home, Aeon’s portfolio has grown to 60 properties that more than 17,300 residents call home each year.

Create more homes. give today.
