Housing for Every Taste and Budget
Housing of every type and in every price range is an important
part of Lowertown's appeal, providing a growing population with
convenient, attractive and affordable places to live, and offering
the village's businesses a growing base of nearby customers.
Since LRC's founding in 1978, more than 1,500 apartments and condominiums
have been built, making Lowertown one of the city's fastest growing
neighborhoods. Clustered near beautiful Mears Park, the popular
Farmers Market, and spectacular Galtier Plaza, they have strong
appeal for both renters and owners, reflected in their extremely
high occupancy and low turnover rates. Most are within an easy
walk of almost every major downtown building or employer.
Pick Your Lifestyle
Developers from across the nation, attracted by Lowertown's potential,
have created a variety of housing to suit every taste and budget.
Rentals range from modest studios at the American House to large
and elegant condos in the high-rise Towers of Galtier Plaza; fashionable
renovated historic warehouses in The Cosmopolitan; and artists'
living-working apartments in The Tilsner, Northern Warehouse and
other charming loft buildings.
True Urban Convenience
When you live and work in St. Paul's urban village, you're within
minutes of every part of the metro Twin Cities area, with easy
access provided by I-94 and 35-E, and other nearby arteries, such
as Warner Road and Jackson Street, as well as most of the bus
lines serving the region. Ample parking is also available in lots
and new ramps throughout the neighborhood.
Lowertown offers its residents maximum convenience, with skyway
connections to virtually everything of interest and importance
in Saint Paul's compact downtown, from retail stores, offices
and hotels to the Ordway Theater, Public Library, Science Museum
and other museums and attractions, as well as financial, legal
and government services of all kinds.
