February Community Meeting Re-Cap

St. Anthony East neighborhood as received a proposal from DJR Architecture on behalf of Nate Labatt and Eric Hermanson, the new owners of 754 Jackson St. NE who would like to develop the site.  After reviewing St. Anthony East Neighborhood’s Small Area Plan, DJR presented a development which would be 4-story building facing Broadway St NE but accessible by car only through Jackson St NE.  The developers are seeking re-zoning the site from R1 (residential, single-family home) to OR1 (residential/commercial).  The proposal indicates commercial space on the ground floor. There are 13 apartment units, 6 2-bedroom, 6 1-bedroom, and 1 1-bedroom, ADA accessible. The developers will also seek to redirect the existing alley from the North-most side of the block to South of the building.  Currently, 6 parking spots are allocated off of the alley.
St. Anthony East Neighborhood Association hosted a listening session on Monday, February 27 at Webster Elementary in order for residents to learn more about the proposal.  There were about 40 residents in attendance.  Many residents expressed concern in the following aspects of the proposal:
1) Increased traffic on Jackson St. NE
2) Small amount of off-street parking designated on the site / decreased availability of on-street parking on Jackson St. NE
3) Environmental sustainability and stormwater collection
4) Building not conforming to the current aesthetics and desired residential population
The developers have to get approval from the City to re-zone the site, including Ward 3’s Councilmember, Jacob Frey. If you have questions or comments for him, his contact information is here: The developer’s project has been assigned to a city planner Nick Baker at the Department of City Planning and Economic Development.  His email is if you have specific questions for him about zoning and city ordinances.
St. Anthony East Neighborhood Association will meet for a regularly scheduled board meeting on Monday, March 27 at Clare Housing starting at 7pm to vote on supporting the proposal.  In the meantime, SAENA would like invite individuals interested in a working session to talk through ideas about how to respond as a community to the development. The work session will be held on Sunday, March 5 at Uncle Franky’s starting at 2pm. SAENA would also like to conduct outreach efforts in the neighborhood in order to gather a wide range of opinions on the proposal.  If you’d like to be involved in outreach efforts or future work sessions, please contact
