Vintage on Selby

Amazing what $65 million can do for reinventing almost four acres of urban real estate in the heart of one of St. Paul’s sweetest neighborhoods. Death to the automobile means the fabulous life at Vintage. The development is a mixed-use nirvana. Two hundred-plus posh apartments above a 39,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market, all within walking distance of pretty much everything. Though rents start at around $1,500, no one can argue with the quality-of-life factor. Hundreds of bike stalls, a dog park, and the best swimming pool this side of the Olympics are just some of the perks. It’s called the sweet nectar of winning.
