Avienda (Pronounced: Ah-vee-EN-da) is located in the area of Highway 212 and Powers Boulevard.  Avienda offers a desirable, diverse shopping and lifestyle destination with convenient access.  As a gateway to the City of Chanhassen, development in Avienda should blend the best of residential, retail, office, medical and hospitality. It should support high quality, attractive design that is compatible as a whole with forms and materials that are authentic to the region.

Project Notifications Disclaimer
Due to the variability of construction, updates typically do not include specific details such as day-to-day scheduled activity. The City's inspector or contractor will notify occupants directly if they will be impacted by a utility service shut down (example: water shutoff), or work (such as excavation or new curb) that will impede access to the property for a period of hours or days.
