The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

7th Avenue Park Apartments: A Proposal for the City of North St. Paul.

Howg, Karly, Peggy Anderson, Trevor Mercil.

HSG 4461: Housing Development and Management, spring 2014. (Instructors Becky Yust and Lyn Bruin, College of Design)

A recent Redevelopment Master Plan for North Saint Paul identified live/work housing as a unique strategy for residential development on the edge of downtown. This type of housing would include both living units and workspace for artisans/craftspeople to pursue their small business or entrepreneurial endeavors. It would help fit the city’s traditional image as a working class community that supports small business enterprises. The goal of this project is to determine the potential of this housing option in North Saint Paul as a means of enhancing livability, creating jobs, promoting equitable economic development, and increasing housing density, and to identify implementation steps for making it happen.

In spring 2014, Students from a housing studies course on multifamily housing developed 4 proposals for live/work projects. These proposals are assigned CURA publication numbers RCP-080-083. This proposal is RCP-083.
