Commission House Apartments — Repositioned / Renovated (New Use)

Located in the Lowertown Historic District neighborhood of downtown St. Paul, the Commission House Apartments offer residents the perfect blend of historical architecture with modern, luxury finishes. The original building was designed by Allen Stem and built by G.M. Deets in 1889 and was used for varying agricultural and retail tenants, most recently home to the Seestedt Carpets Building. The redevelopment transformed the three-story building into 26 luxury apartments and storefront retail.
