S9 selected as premier builder

Highland Bridge, the former Ford Motor Co. assembly plant in St. Paul, has been transformed into a sustainable residential neighborhood, setting a new standard for the region.

With the addition of new lots to the market and the high demand for housing, these lots are sure to go quickly. Let's take a closer look at what the Highland Bridge development has to offer.

Development Details

The Highland Bridge development offers a range of lots with varying prices, from $475,000 to $1.15 million, making them a unique and sought-after location with exceptional amenities from surrounding communities. 

The development has gained public recognition and generated significant interest, with over 1,000 inquiries into the 34 lots that will be available for sale as of late January, according to Coldwell Banker Realty’s Crocus Hill Office, the brokerage firm responsible for land sales.

The first phase of the project is set to open Monday, February 8th, and will release just 20 of the lots. The other 14 lots will be released at a later date. Those interested in building single-family homes in the area can expect that homes will range from $1.3 to $3 million in total cost after the cost of land. This will make for nothing short of a luxury neighborhood.

History + Location

The Ford Motor Plant located at 117 University Ave W, Saint Paul, has a rich history dating back to its construction in 1914 by Henry Ford and his team, who aimed to expand manufacturing throughout the Midwest. Despite never producing more than 500-1000 vehicles annually, the factory played a significant role in St. Paul's culture.

In the 1970s, the state of Minnesota purchased the building for office use, and it is located just across the street from the state's capital. A production facility on Mississippi River Boulevard, where the river is dammed to harness its power, was also part of the Ford Motor Company but was demolished in 2012 to pave the way for future developments.

The Highland Bridge St. Paul development is now in its place, featuring unique lots with great amenities and location, which have attracted over 1,000 inquiries as of late January, according to Coldwell Banker Realty's Crocus Hill Office, the brokerage firm handling land sales. With lots ranging from $475,000 to $1.15 million, these properties won't be available for long.

Highland Bridge Neighborhood Highlights

The chance to build a home on Mississippi River Boulevard is a rare opportunity that comes around only once in almost half a century. Those who seize this opportunity in time will be able to take advantage of the exceptional location of the Highland Bridge development. 

The development will offer a range of amenities, including nearby shopping, parks, athletic fields, and more, making it an ideal choice for families ready to build new homes. In addition to single-family lots, the development will feature several apartment buildings, providing an option for those who want to enjoy the location without buying or building a home.

The Highland Bridge development is set to become a vibrant community with a range of housing options to suit different lifestyles and budgets. The project will include 3,800 housing units, with 20% designated as affordable housing, as well as 265,000 square feet of office space and 150,000 square feet of retail space. 

On the northeast corner of the site, construction is already underway on a mixed-use building that will feature 230 apartments and a 51,000-square-foot Lunds & Byerly’s grocery store. The development will offer a diverse range of housing options including affordable housing opportunities, a 15-block row home district, apartment communities, custom homes, senior living, and condos. 

With 20 lots located along the Mississippi River, residents will have access to stunning river views. The project is expected to house nearly 300,000 residents and span across approximately 8 acres when completed.
