333 On the Park Apartment Building
Lowertown has a new addition! 333 on the Park, the former Gordon and Ferguson building, has been renovated into a 134-unit luxury apartment complex! Timberland Partners is the developer who made this project possible. In an interview with Ryan Sailer, Timberland’s Vice President of Development, we discussed the many amenities that make 333 on the Park such a luxurious place to live, why they chose to invest in St. Paul’s Lowertown, and the history that was left in the building.
333 on the Park offers everything a city dweller could want. Every apartment is equipped with a full sized washer and dryer, full kitchen for entertaining and, an added bonus; there are 24 floor plans which means you will not be in a “cookie-cutter” apartment! Outside your own home, one will have access to the communities’ sky lounge, which features a rooftop terrace and outdoor kitchen, community room, theater room, 24-hour fitness center featuring Wellbeats and a yoga studio, gallery space, underground parking and bike storage and repair! If that is not enough, your furry little friend gets a perk too; 333 On the Park has its very own Pet Spaw!
Along with the amazing amenities, 333 on the Park’s location could not be more convenient. Located kitty corner from Mears Park and a block from the Green Line, a resident can easily enjoy all the conveniences that come with living downtown.
When I asked Ryan to explain why Timberland chose to invest in the area, he responded by saying, “We like downtown, and Lowertown in particular, because of its neighborhood vibe, there is a sense of community that’s very hard to achieve in a downtown setting. Although it’s a well-established neighborhood, it’s transforming from one that was typically active only during the workday to one that’s becoming an entertainment destination because of the influx of new residents which in turn is bringing in many new restaurants and bars. We were also drawn to Lowertown because of the historical character and the stable demographics. Lastly, it’s a very mature neighborhood in terms of development opportunities, meaning there are very few infill or redevelopment sites available; we feel this will help us in the long-term by limiting the chances of the area becoming overbuilt.”
With all of the history in Lowertown, Timberland wanted to preserve some of the building’s history. Architectural elements from the original building that have been preserved and showcased include the original ceilings, columns, and large skylights located on the top floor. In addition, all original windows that were still remaining in the building when Timberland purchased it have been stripped and refurbished.
This historic renovation will be opening its doors on March 15, 2017. The leasing team is currently running a limited time special that offers a free month of rent to residents moving in on the opening date! 333 On the Park will bring more light and livability to our downtown area and with all of the amenities, no resident will feel they need more then what they already have.
