The Winslow, West St Paul’s newest senior affordable housing development starts leasing for Summer 2020 occupancy
St Paul, MN-January 7, 2020-Real Estate Equities, in partnership with DARTS, began pre-leasing its newest senior affordable community, The Winslow West St Paul, an amenity-rich project within walking distance of thriving retail, healthcare, and recreational opportunities.
The 172-unit development, comprised of one-and two-bedroom units, is located at 1635 Marthaler Lane in West St Paul. The project was designed by Kaas Wilson Architects and is being constructed by General Contractor, Big-D Construction. It will be complete and ready for its first residents in June 2020.
“Anxiety about housing is one of the most common concerns the DARTS staff hears. Older adults often struggle with their home upkeep and then worry that their assets will not cover the costs for renting. The Winslow project addresses those concerns and will provide a community atmosphere in which they can thrive.” Ann Bailey, DARTS President commented.
Construction on The Winslow started in January 2019. The property features an attractive exterior design with modern amenities as well as high-quality interior finishes such as granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and vinyl-plank flooring. “I am so pleased with the leadership Real Estate Equities is bringing to the affordable senior housing market. They are committed to demonstrating that current design elements and wonderful amenities should be accessible to all of us, regardless of how wealthy we are,” Bailey added. Other features include a two-story clubroom and lounge with kitchen, craft room, fitness center, salon, outdoor deck with grilling stations, business center, game room, and theater.
“The Winslow development is occurring at an ideal time,” explained Patrick Ostrom, Real Estate Equities’ Development Partner. “It’s an attractive property with an exceptional location and impressive amenities that will serve the needs of seniors in need of affordable housing in Dakota County.”

DARTS is Expanding!
In partnership with Real Estate Equities, DARTS is working to redevelop the land on the corner of Wentworth and Marthaler Lane into affordable Senior Housing in West St. Paul.
As the demand for senior housing rises, this is the opportune time to develop underutilized land for the creation of affordable housing for older adults in Dakota County. The Dakota County Community Development Agency (CDA) Senior Housing had to close its waiting lists June 1, 2017 due to demand. The population 65+ in Dakota County is nearing 20% and projected to be 25% by 2035.
Apartment units are planned to include:
Washer/dryer per unit
Storage units on each floor
Activity areas (exercise room, screened porch, walking path)
On June 25, 2018, the West St. Paul City Council unanimously voted in favor of the proposed rezoning and site plan! A final hearing occurs July 9.
