Highland Bridge April 2022 Housing Construction Updates

Spring is here after a long Minnesota winter and we’re excited to share updates on the housing at Highland Bridge!

In late January, Pulte Homes successfully opened the rowhomes for sales and currently has homes available for purchase in the first four buildings. Open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., all are invited to tour the four models! Virtual tours are also available of each model. The entrance for Pulte Homes’ Rowhome District is accessible from Mississippi River Boulevard on Bohland Avenue. Lot parking is available next to the models.

Weidner Apartment Homes’ first development at Highland Bridge, The Collection, will open in mid-July. Featuring 230 apartments that range from studios to penthouse units, the building will also include a new Lunds & Byerly’s store that will open this fall. To learn about availability and leasing, visit The Collection at Highland Bridge website.

Presbyterian Homes continues to see tremendous interest in the Marvella senior living community! To date, more than 30 percent of the apartments have been reserved. Many of the apartments offer large windows and incredible views of the developing Highland Bridge community. Presbyterian Homes has opened a marketing office in the Highland Center at 2011 Hillcrest Avenue in Saint Paul. Mary Hoffer will be happy to give you a virtual tour of the new community. Contact Mary at 651-705-8318. To view the available apartments, visit the Marvella Sight Map webpage.

Closings on the custom home lots at Highland Bridge continue to move forward! We look forward to watching homes begin construction this summer. If you are interested in a custom home lot at Highland Bridge, connect with our sales team here or at 651-321-3118.

CommonBond’s first Highland Bridge development, called The Lumin, is a proposed 58,000 SF, 60-unit affordable housing development for households aged 55 and over. The Lumin will include 48 one-bedroom units and 12 two-bedroom units. Units will be rent- and income-restricted to senior households with incomes of 30 percent of the area median income (AMI) or below. All 60 units will benefit from project-based Section 8 vouchers, seven of which will be further restricted to formerly homeless seniors. CommonBond anticipates closing on their financing and beginning construction this summer, with leasing to begin in early 2023. CommonBond will begin maintaining apartment waiting lists in early 2023.

Project for Pride in Living continues to anticipate a summer 2022 start Nellie Francis Court, including 75 workforce housing units, and Restoring Waters, including 60 supportive housing units in partnership with Emma Norton. All units will be rent and income restricted. PPL will begin maintaining apartment waiting lists in 2023.

Previously, we had hoped to release details of Highland Bridge Condominiums in early 2022. At this time, we have paused development of the planned condominium building. We may revisit developing a condominium building in the future at Highland Bridge and are maintaining a contact list should this option become available. Our sales team at Coldwell Banker is maintaining the list and may be reached at 651-321-3118.

Thank you for your continued interest in housing at Highland Bridge!
