PROJECT: Jackson Street Village

LOCATION
St. Paul, Minnesota

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
This multi-family supportive housing development includes construction of twenty-five new two, three and four bedroom townhomes on a reclaimed brownfield site. The three townhouse buildings face a new community building and play area nestled within a large landscaped lawn. From the units, residents also have pleasant views to a neighboring wetland. The project's many challenges include containment and removal of debris and contaminated soils from the site to provide a safe environment for residents and a stable base for the buildings. With direction and leadership from the Wilder Foundation's Health House Consultants, the team incorporated many innovative construction techniques and materials into the buildings with the goal of providing better indoor air quality as well as improving overall energy efficiency. These techniques included a geothermal heating and cooling system and an innovative exterior wall design meant to provide a more effective air and vapor barrier than found in typical construction, thereby reducing the possibility for water infiltration and mold growth in the wall system.
