I bought the house because it was a vibrate commercial district, near desirable neighborhoods, and the house was very low priced. We improved the house by finishing the third floor into livable space, repaired the squirrel damaged roof, and installed the driveway so we wouldn’t have to park on the street anymore. (I wish more homeowners would park on their property instead on whine about others parking on the public streets). I will be sad to see the the first house I ever owned torn down but I support a city growing up, changing, and making even more homes for more people to live in St. Paul. Existing residents shouldn’t get to create moats and walls with the zoning code to keep new residents out unless they meet an income test to acquire from an artificial shortage. I’m glad my first house can be part of creating homes for even more people. This will make Snelling and Selby even greater. +1
