ARDEN HILLS, MN-Beacon Construction has proposed building a 30-unit apartment complex here that would satisfy a need for increased student housing for nearby Bethel College. The Loretto, MN-based company would build the apartments, mostly two-bedroom units with some three-bedroom units, on the southeast corner of Cleveland Avenue and County Road E2.
