Project Type: New Construction Mixed-Use Development; St. Paul, MN
Client: Sparc and Legacy Management and Development Corporation
The Winnipeg development consists of two mixed-use buildings located on Rice Street in St. Paul. LHB designed the project for a partnership between Legacy Management and Development Corporation and Sparc, a non-profit community development organization. As a key component of the Rice Street revitalization, the Winnipeg provides an important amenity to the community, setting the standard for future high quality development in the area. The buildings and site incorporate sustainable design principles focused on ensuring life-cycle cost reductions, environmental sensitivity as well as enhanced quality of life for residents. The three story buildings house 56 one, two and three bedroom affordable rental units and approximately 6,500 s.f. of commercial space. Enclosed parking is located on the ground floor for residents while additional parking needs are met by small surface lots. Project amenities include resident lounges, indoor play areas, secure outdoor patios and an ideal site location providing access to employment opportunities and public transportation.
