A New Trend in Downtown/Lowertown Saint Paul: The Urban Condo or Loft
Many real estate buyers today want an urban cabin and buying a downtown St Paul condo or loft fits the bill. Nowhere in the Twin Cities is the urban feel so appealing, and it’s a perfect location for a second, part-time residence. If you would love the experience of city living during time off or weekends, downtown St Paul is your urban village, with cafes, pubs and restaurants, art galleries and theatres, and immediate accessibility to the games and festival events (and the great dog park!) at CHS Field.
Charming Lowertown and Downtown Lofts
The first lofts were the artists’ ateliers of 19th-century Paris. The grand paintings of the time called for high-ceilinged studios.
Enjoy the authentic loft interiors up to 18′ high around the central atrium of River Park Lofts. Your urban getaway space will be right next to the Farmers Market and offers Skyway access. The shared amenities are: exercise room, a rooftop deck, and amusement room.
Lowertown lofts for sale also include the Ninth Street Lofts—beautiful downtown St Paul urban living with a view of Wacouta Commons Park through oversized windows. Relax: you have underground parking. Invite friends to a rooftop party. You’re just a 5-minute stroll from the Union Depot stop on the Green Line.
The nearby Union Depot Lofts in a renovated historic building are a must-see before you decide on your urban cabin. Amenities include a deck on the roof, excercise room and also contract parking. And we love the elegant hardwood and the charming feel of the Lot 270 interiors.
Weekend Condo Joy
If your preference is a condo for your getaway space, explore Printer’s Row on the Temperance Street. Or see the suites at Airye Condos, with river vistas and convenient Skyway access. People love the condos at the Pointe of St Paul, which has a quite friendly community, a splendid entertainment area, and plenty of visitor parking spaces.
City Walk is a must-see high-rise with a fitness center, a pool, a sauna, and also a rooftop deck. Its access to the Skyway is a huge plus year-round.
Market House Condos offer the best of both worlds, with a stunning central atrium and an expansive roof deck. Ample storage space is built right underneath the bedroom space!
If you’re seeking your own urban condo cabin in city, the perfect spot is here—in wonderfully walkable downtown St Paul.
