St, Paul, MN
The Penfield is an exciting mixed-use project located in the heart of downtown Saint Paul. The site originally included a surface parking lot and the historic Public Safety Building, which sat on the southwest corner of the block. The Penfield design preserved the historic structure’s south and west exterior façades and incorporated them into the new development.
The Penfield is a six-story building with 254 market-rate apartments, a one-story 30,000 sf Lund’s grocery store on the first floor, and approximately 330 enclosed parking spaces. The total area of the project is approximately 406,000 sf. The Penfield provides luxurious amenities and community spaces such as a concierge, a lap pool, a sundeck/green roof, a business center, a club room, a fitness center, and a sky lounge.
The strong downtown employment base was a driving force in the development of this project. Located in the heart of the State Capitol government sector, The Penfield is within walking distance to all government agency buildings. In addition, the building is surrounded by three of the largest private employers in St. Paul: Lawson Software, Travelers Insurance, and Regents and United Hospitals, two of the largest hospitals in the state. These industries, along with the government sector, account for the largest employers in the area and all are within a six-block radius of the site. The Penfield is also situated one block from the new LRT Green Line.
