Lyon Contracting builds its reputation for quality developments while focusing on controlled growth.

The Cielo Apartment Complex in Fridley, MN was highlighted in the Winter 2016 Issue of Modern Home Builder Magazine. Please take a moment and read the article at or purchase a copy!

 The article highlights that Lyon Contracting develops, owns and constructs a large percentage of their projects. There has been a boom in multifamily developments and about ten years ago we added assisted-living developments to ensure our staff and subcontractors continue to have consistent work. “We won’t grow too fast because we want to maintain the quality we have, but will grow at a controlled rate, we are right on the pace we want to be.”

We’ve entered into the “upscale apartment market” meaning people want higher end finishes in the apartment, more amenities and the latest communication trends.
