Famed Brewery Becomes Affordable Artist Lofts

The Schmidt Brewery, one of Minnesota’s 10 most endangered historic places, has been preserved and rehabilitated into 247 units by Dominium. The project also includes 13 townhomes for a total of 260 units.

The $122 million project is financed with a mix of low-income housing tax credits, tax-exempt bonds, and historic tax credits.

Designed with artists in mind, the project takes advantage of the building’s high ceilings and natural light to create a unique space for residents to work and display their art.

Schmidt Artist Lofts preserves a part of St. Paul’s history while creating new affordable housing opportunities.
