Superior Shores Lakehomes: Lake Superior's Hidden Destination
More InformationShow full item record
The north shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota is a major tourist destination for travelers from around the country and worldwide. The past 50 years has seen rapid development of both residential and commercial lots along the lake shore. Much of this development has had an adverse affect on the ecology of the shoreline. Superior Shores, a resort and lake home rental property near Two Harbors is an example of housing and business on the lake which I have interest in. This 46 acre property includes a lodge, several condo units, restaurants, pools, small shops and conference center. The property edges the shore and includes some undeveloped woodland areas. This property is currently undergoing changes in both ownership and property management. Soon the lodge, conference center, and restaurant will be a new property and not part of the Lake Home Association which I am working with. The underlying premise of design is that the Lake Superior ecology can inform ways to restore that environment to a more natural state. I purpose to rework the existing property into a more natural and secluded site.
