A centuries of stories. come write your own.

81 on Seventh is a four (4) story office building consisting of approximately 47,000 square feet (excluding lower level), with an average floor plate of 13,000 square feet, located in a thriving epicenter of creative energy in the heart of downtown St. Paul. Built in 1907, it was used as a retail showroom and storage facility. Later as the building approached its one-hundredth birthday, it was restored into an office building using sustainable and green strategic practices. This Building is a brick and timber re-imagined classic with newly built core systems and modern technologies. 81 On Seventh is the only building in downtown St. Paul that retained its historic character through the complete adaptive renovation, and an urban surprise.
