Pastoret Building Conditions Assessment
Project Type: Conditions Assessment, Duluth, MN
Client: St. Louis County
The Pastoret Terrace was designed by renowned Architect Oliver Traphagen and constructed as six town houses in 1887 and is a contributing resource to the Duluth Commercial Historic District. In 1924, a restaurant/tavern was added to the first floor and the prominent corner tower was removed. In the 1930s, the building was divided into forty units and grew to be a fifty unit building by 2009. The tavern became the Kozy bar in 1960. In 2010, the 50-unit single room occupancy building caught fire and was condemned. The Terrace then became the property of St. Louis County.
LHB was contracted by the County to determine potential opportunities for the Terrace and site as well as to explore potential costs to undertake those options. LHB documented existing conditions, determined the approximate cost to rehabilitation for other uses, and determined the cost to redevelop the site.
