The Opus Group will start construction on a six-story mixed-use luxury apartment and retail development in downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota. The project, located on West Seventh Street, is a keystone in revitalizing Saint Paul’s historic downtown.

The planned six-story, U-shaped apartment and retail development will feature a combination of 191 studio, one- and two-bedroom units and three-bedroom townhouse-style residences, as well as 11,500 square feet of ground-level retail space. The residential development will include such luxury amenities as an outdoor courtyard featuring a pool, hot tub, bocce ball and grill areas, as well as a terrace-level patio and club room with river views.

“Projects like this one demonstrate the power of collaborative, community-focused development,” said St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman in a statement. “I am excited to see the development of this iconic street corner, and know that it speaks volumes to the energy and momentum we are seeing across Saint Paul.”

The Seven Corners Hardware site is only part of Opus’ current presence in Saint Paul, where it is also collaborating with Greco LLC and the city of Saint Paul on the redevelopment of the Seven Corners Gateway site, across from the Xcel Energy Center and bounded by Smith Avenue, Kellogg Boulevard, West Seventh Street and Fifth Street.

Opus Development Company, L.L.C. is the developer, Opus Design Build, L.L.C. is the design builder and Opus AE Group, L.L.C. is the architect and structural engineer of record. Elness Swenson Graham Architects, Inc. is the design architect. The project is scheduled for completion in January of 2017.
