Since its first months in 1978, the Federation has
prioritized development of the housing stock of its neighborhoods. Here
are a few of its successful projects:
The Goodrich Housing is an affordable 18 unit rental
development owned and developed by Twin Cities Housing Development Corporation
and the West 7th/Fort Road Federation.
The Brewery Breakthrough Project is a 44 unit development
that was developed by the Federation with funding assistance from the City of
Saint Paul, Minnesota Housing Finance Agency, Metropolitan Livable Communities
program, and the Saint Paul STAR program.
The project was designed for various incomes and livings styles and includes
new and rehabilitated single family housing, new townhouse units and
restoration of the Funk Mansion.
Included in the development is the 22 unit River Heights Townhomes developed
by Brighton Development Corporation and the Federation.
In 2003, 1000 Friends of Minnesota awarded the Federation a Smart Growth award
for the Brewery Project.
