The Midwest has a several defining water features: the Great Lakes (all five of them) and the mighty Mississippi River. Northern Minnesotans get to enjoy Lake Superior, and the Mississippi River cuts through much of the state, flowing southeast from Lake Itasca near Bemidji. During its journey through the state that spans hundreds of miles, the Mississippi River also cuts through St. Paul, creating a spectacular view and many recreational opportunities. These St. Paul apartments will put you close enough to the Mississippi River to enjoy its beauty and its recreation.
Perfect for dog owners, these pet-friendly St. Paul apartments are plugged into the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area’s miles of trails and greenspace and is just steps away from both the river and High Bridge Dog Park. With easy access to downtown and the interstate, it’s ideally located in a quiet, tree-filled neighborhood. Flexible floorplans include one- and two-bedrooms, plus something in between — one bedroom plus den — for just a bit of extra space, no roommates necessary. The apartments are modern, spacious, and thoughtfully laid out, with in-unit laundry and plenty of counter space, cabinet space, and natural light. The building’s fitness center and outdoor gathering space with seating and fire pit give you ample opportunity to get out of the apartment, as do the miles of trails at your doorstep.
Near both the river and Crosby Lake, the Chateau Montreal offers plenty of waterfront access, and Summit Brewing and several local restaurants are just blocks away. It’s southwest of downtown but convenient highway access — as well as the nearby Shepard Road that runs along the Mississippi toward downtown — makes the short drive easy. These simple apartments are perfect for any budget, at just $875 for a one-bedroom. Plus, rent includes parking and an exercise room, and laundry is available on-site.
With beautiful warm wood cabinetry and flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed ductwork, and track lighting, these units have an eclectic and artistic feel, almost like a gallery space. The apartments range from 540 to 1,100 square feet, but if you need more space, head down to the community courtyard for a dip in the pool or hot tub, or grill out with friends and entertain around the fire pit. Near trails, this pet-friendly building is a great fit for dog owners and even includes a dog washing station and dog run. But you don’t need four legs to appreciate the custom touches throughout, ranging from wall color to built-in storage and shelving. A frosted glass sliding door keeps your bedroom private, and a shoe rack in the closet keeps you organized. All of this luxury is right downtown, blocks from the Minnesota State Capitol, Minnesota History Center, Xcel Energy Center, Mississippi riverfront, and Minnesota Children’s Museum.
Also downtown, overlooking Mears Park and blocks from Lower Landing Park, these spacious St. Paul apartments have ceilings up to 16 feet and windows that span nearly all of that height. The units are also equipped with hardwood floors, walk-in closets, washer and dryer, and the community itself offers package receiving, storage, dry cleaning services, and a fitness area. On the third floor, you’ll also find a sundeck perfect for sunbathing, picnicking, shuffleboard, or gathering around the fire pit.
