Introducing “Farwell on Water”: A Beacon of Community, Creativity, and Affordable Living

We are thrilled to announce the groundbreaking of St Paul’s Farwell on Water district, Buhl Investors’ latest mixed-use development that encapsulates our vision for a vibrant, integrated, and dynamic community. At the heart of this project are values that resonate deeply with us – fostering community ties, celebrating artistic expression, and ensuring accessibility to all.

As we embark on this transformative journey, we invite you to get an exclusive, firsthand look at the groundbreaking ceremony that took place in June. Witness the pivotal moments as Pete Deanovic of Buhl Investors and Mayor Melvin Carter of St. Paul come together to symbolize the commencement of Farwell on Water.

Unveiling Esox House and Harbourline

At the forefront of this ambitious project are two residential ventures that stand as pillars of inclusivity and modern living: Esox House and Harbourline.

Esox House brings 221 market-rate units to the table, promising “naturally beautiful living.” With Harriet Island as its front yard, residents are promised a daily dose of serenity with stunning views of the Mississippi River. Wake up to the rhythmic flow of the river, and bask in nature’s beauty right from your window.

Harbourline champions our dedication to inclusivity with 63 affordable units. “Land easy. Live well,” is not just a tagline; it’s our commitment to ensuring everyone finds their perfect home here. Moreover, with seven units reserved for supportive housing services for individuals facing homelessness or disabilities, Harbourline is set to be a beacon of hope and community support.

More Than Just a Place to Live

Farwell on Water isn’t just about beautiful residences overlooking the Mississippi River. It’s about the heart and soul of St. Paul. Nestled within the development is the historically significant Farwell, Ozmun, Kirk & Co. warehouse, which has seamlessly transitioned into the creative hub, F-O-K Studios at 102 Water St.

Our mixed-use blueprint introduces W2 Works – modern office spaces designed for businesses that envision a future hand-in-hand with community and culture. Add to this, a contemporary restaurant and the public plaza, aptly named The Farwell Yard, and you have a space that’s brimming with life and opportunities.

The future of St. Paul lies in bridging communities, fostering diversity, and creating inclusive spaces where everyone feels at home. Farwell on Water is our step towards that future. With artist events, community gatherings, and a host of other events, the district will become a melting pot of cultures, ideas, and dreams.

St. Paul’s horizon is bright, and Farwell on Water is set to be its shining star. A place where past meets present, where dreams meet reality, and where every individual finds their unique place. Join us on this exhilarating journey to redefine St. Paul living.
