Printer’s Row brings a new loft design concept
to downtown Saint Paul

Model Opens Friday, June 17

Saint Paul—Downtown Saint Paul loft buyers who haven’t yet seen what they’re looking for have a new model to visit. Printer’s Row, Lander Sherman’s newest addition to Saint Paul’s growing Wacouta Commons neighborhood, opens its model to the public on Friday, June 17. “We’re really excited to open this model because the design concept for our Printer’s Row buildings is so different from anything else in Saint Paul,” Sales Director Tony Kriha. “It’s something people have to see to comprehend.”

According to Kriha, the Printer’s Row homes are unique in that they are contemporary new construction. “Most of the new construction has a much more ‘traditional’ feel than what you’ll get in these buildings. This development offers the best of both worlds – ‘loft-style’ design with open floor plans, fresh design, and huge windows, in new construction that maximizes space and floor plan,” he said. The two-bedroom/two-bathroom model features oversized windows, polished concrete floors, front patio, street front entry, designer kitchen cabinets and a fireplace. The homes are located only a half block from the new Wacouta Commons Park, now under construction and expected to be completed this fall.

Printer’s Row, located at the intersection of Temperance and 9th Streets, consists of two newly-constructed contemporary buildings, each housing 42-single story urban homes. The first building will be completed for fall move-ins. The second building will be available for move-in in fall 2006. Prices range from $169,900 to $500,000’s. According to Kriha, nearly 50% of the homes have already been sold/reserved. Buyers are a mix of first time home buyers, young professionals, and empty nesters.

Beginning Friday, June 17, the Printer’s Row model will be open from Noon-4 p.m. It is located at 195 E. 9th Street, at the corner of 9th & Temperance. For further information on Printer’s Row area ownership housing contact, Tony Kriha at 651-230-0392 or or

The architecture for the Printer’s Row buildings complements that of the rest of the neighborhood, including 9th Street Lofts’ 1909 warehouse building and the more traditional Essex and Dakota on the Park. The buildings are located on a site historically used for printing companies, but more recently occupied by surface parking lots.
