Now open in downtown Saint Paul – The Penfield

The Penfield, a 254 unit market-rate rental housing development, welcomed its first residents at the end of November. All of the apartment units are now complete and finishing touches are being made to interior décor.
The building occupies the entire block of 10th and 11th streets between Robert and Minnesota.

Public art installations include: a corten light wall, corten steel lighted benches, cut granite benches, and a Spirit of the Mississippi statue. The statue will be installed this spring. There is also a historical interpretation capturing the history of the former Public Safety Building that once occupied the site. One wall of the building was preserved and incorporated into The Penfield.
