Sentinel Management Company has developed, owned, and managed commercial real estate assets since its formation in 1972.

Our interdisciplinary approach, long-term time horizon, and operational excellence allows us to offer strong, stable returns for our investors and high-quality, durable assets for our residents and community.

We are 100% focused on developing, owning, and managing assets in the Twin Cities. We do so ethically, responsibly, and building upon the legacy of those who came before us.

What We Do

Building facade under construction.


Sentinel was founded on development – bringing infrastructure to 300 acres in the Edina Industrial Blvd corridor along highways 100 and 494 in the early 1970s.

We search for A+ locations with durable consumer demand that we would be comfortable owning for decades. Most of our developments have been held for 10+ years.

Our investment thesis is that a broad, strategic vision with a long-term time horizon provides the best returns for investors and the community at large.

We reject short-term thinking and quick IRR bumps in favor of generational wealth-enhancing decisions that preserve and build capital responsibly and sustainably.

We offer a number of advisory services for our clients, including owner’s representation and construction project management services.

We have the experience to assist clients in navigating the dynamic and complex world of commercial real estate construction and development.


In June, 2023, we closed on two properties in Golden Valley that are part of a 303-unit multifamily and 4,500 square foot redevelopment of a Wells Fargo bank. This complex project brought together numerous competing stakeholders and took 2 years to put together. There is over $20M of TIF available for the project.

The bank portion of the project will break ground in 3rd quarter of 2023.

Multifamily architectural plans are being completed, and we will be opening the doors to outside investors in the upcoming months.
