In our opinion, no city is complete without a vibrant downtown area and St. Paul, although it lives in the shadow of her twin, has vibrancy in spades. From the repurposed historic buildings to the convenience of having everything you need within steps of your front door, living in downtown St. Paul offers a way of life that only urban living can provide.
Loft living epitomizes the urban lifestyle and you can’t do better than purchasing a home at 9th Street Lofts. With only 49 homes, the community offers the best of both worlds ― the chance to really get to know your neighbors or almost complete privacy.
This community is located adjacent to Wacouta Park, in the Wacouta Commons development. The building started life as a printing factory and was renovated in 2005 to become home to amazingly charming lofts spread throughout five floors (and a penthouse). They include everything one expects in a loft conversion, such as high ceilings, exposed ductwork and concrete floors.
Amenities include a party room on the roof. Then, there is the fact that all you need to do is take a leisurely four-minute walk and you’ll be at breakfast heaven, The Buttered Tin. Camp Bar Twin Cities, Tin Whiskers Brewing Company and Sawatdee are a straight shot down E. 9th St.
You'll find the 9th Street Lofts at 225 9th Street, at the corner of Sibley in downtown St. Paul.
