River Park Lofts

River Park Lofts | Downtown St. Paul, MN

  • This seven-story turn-of-the century office/warehouse was originally built in 1905 and the attached firehouse building was added in 1921.
  • The main building is of heavy timber construction with a light brown brick veneer.
  • Cast iron columns are used in the lower three floors and basement. Wood columns occur from the 4th floor through the 7th floor.
  • The attached firehouse is of brick and timber construction.
  • This was a true loft conversion, meaning that each unit has exposed concrete floors, exposed heavy timber ceilings, exposed brick walls, and exposed HVAC duct work.
  • Ceiling heights range from 11-18 ft, with an 8-story atrium.
  • The 1st & 7th floors feature a spiral staircase to the mezzanine level.
  • The units on the north side of the building have a balcony or patio, and the 7th floor penthouse units feature private roof top decks.
  • This building has a total of 119 condominium homes and common areas including a large community room with kitchen and restrooms, an exercise room, business center, and a roof-top deck with grill & patio furniture.
