The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, April 14 from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Those attending the meeting will see a short presentation from Saturday Properties and their contracted architect AWH. They will share their plans to revitalized the historic high school into multifamily apartments. Click here to view the meeting calendar and to join this meeting.

According to the City of Duluth, Saturday Properties will renovate the historic structure to house approximately 125 rental units, primarily market-rate rental, with approximately 10% of the apartments to have their rents restricted to households at 60% of Area Median Income.

The additional proposed housing in this area will take advantage of the excellent access to nearby commercial businesses, local employers, and recreational amenities.

While the inside of the building will obviously need a considerable amount of work to achieve their vision, they do plan on preserving the unique architectural character of the important Duluth landmark. Even the historic clock and bells will continue to be lit up and ring.  Click here for complete information on this project, including overall plans and frequently asked questions.

Construction is expected to begin this summer and be completed by spring 2023, at which time residents will begin moving into the finished apartments.
