HSP is partnering with developer Eric Foster, of Autumn Song LLC, who will purchase and rehabilitate 208-210 Bates. Constructed in 1885, the building has been vacant since 2002. lIt was slated for demolition, when community advocates encouraged the city to include it in a Request for Propsosals (RFP) for parties interested in develping it. It will provide four units of distinctive affordable housing - 2 one-bedroom + studio space and 2 two-bedroom.
This is an Inspiring Communites project undertaken with support form the City of Saint Paul's Housing and Redevelopment Authority.
