“Radius @ 15th provides residents top-of-the-market community and in-unit amenities,” said Austin L. Repetto, one of the principals of TSB Realty, “and the property is located across the street from the on-campus University of Minnesota athletic facilities. These made it an ideal candidate for Timberline and Heitman.”
