Highland Pointe is part of a redevelopment of a twelve-acre existing residential area bound by West 7th Street on the northwest, Munster Avenue on the north, Davern Street on the east and Norfolk Avenue on the south. Prior to its inception, the area consisted of 35 single family homes built in the 1950’s and 1960’s as well as a restaurant/entertainment complex. Sadly, the area had fallen into disrepair and was in need of a facelift.

Approximately five years ago, the City of St. Paul designated the entire surrounding area as the “Shepard Davern Redevelopment District”. This specific twelve-acre project area was the first portion of the Shepard-Davern Redevelopment District to come on line and be offered for redevelopment.

In the past five years, the project has seen a multitude of iterations. Beginning with a development that was all office with retail/restaurant it changed to partial office with a theater, a hotel and restaurant/retail, then to a primarily housing project with senior assisted living and apartments, a hotel and restaurant/retail, to the current final plan. The current plan, developed by Stonebridge and Chase Homes, which began construction in fall of 2003, is now 100% housing in four separate housing buildings. It consists of approximately 350 units of general occupancy rental apartments and 150 units of “for-sale” condominiums.

This development has received enormous support from the City leaders including Mayor Kelly as part of his “Housing 5000” program, Councilman Pat Harris who has been a strong supporter of new housing for this area, and the local community leadership of the Highland Park District Council. The goal of the Housing 5000 program is to create 5000 new housing units within the City of St. Paul over four years. With the start of Highland Pointe and the rest of the Gateway Village Project, the city has reached the halfway point of their housing goal.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held on December 17, 2003, and featured speakers that included Mayor Kelly, St. Paul Councilman Harris, Ramsey County Commissioner Ortega, the head of St. Paul Planning and Economic Development, Martha Fuller, and other local civic leaders.

The housing buildings are all four-level structures with a fifth lower level of underground parking. There is a wide variety of unique unit plans available in each of the buildings, some with direct outside access to the adjacent streets, some to covered plazas, others that offer two-level living in both the rental and the condominiums. All units are appointed with the latest industry standard treatments for finishes, appliances, features, etc. and state of the art internet access and security technology for the occupants.

Surface parking is minimized due to the large areas of underground parking. Curbside parking is provided and encouraged on all streets to promote the “urban village” feel which has been a key factor and a requirement of this development. The exteriors of the buildings will be designed in the flavor of the classic St. Paul architecture, using brick and masonry products that are consistent with the bluffs and bridge treatments that are seen upon entering St. Paul from the west. Other traditional siding treatments are provided to accent the brick along with significant glass areas giving the residents the benefit of maximum daylight within their living spaces.
