Lexington Commons: Adaptive Reuse

Lexington Commons, an affordable CommonBond community in St. Paul 

An adaptive reuse of a four-story former nursing home built in the 1960s, Lexington Commons was designed to achieve LEED certification. Construction included demolition of all non-structural walls, asbestos abatement, complete roof replacement and a new, high-efficiency mechanical system. We added new windows, resin panels to cover the existing air conditioning sleeves, and a professionally landscaped patio area to complete the building's transformation.

Lexington Commons is a sober living community with 48 efficiency apartments specifically designed for single adults who meet the state definition of Long-Term Homeless and single adults who meet the federal definition of Chronic Homelessness.  Residents pay rent based on income.  Lexington Commons is permanent, supportive, affordable housing.  

Financing Tool
Lexington's primary funding source is federal stimulus funds administered through Minnesota Housing for a total of $8 million. The development is one of the first in the state of Minnesota to receive federal stimulus funds for affordable housing.
