Macalester-Groveland Real Estate - St. Paul MN

Universities and colleges located in or near the Macalaster Groveland (Mac­Groveland) district: Macalaster College, the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul Seminary, The College of St. Catherine, and William Mitchell College of Law, give Macalester-Groveland a friendly, college-town feel. Created in the 1880s when a group of Macalester College trustees bought a farm west of St. Paul and divided it into campuses and lots for houses, Macalester-Groveland has become one of St. Paul's epicenters, bustling with academic and commercial energy. Grand Avenue, the main east-west thoroughfare, includes specialty retail shops, restaurants, and exciting nightclubs. There are scores of places to eat, drink, and argue poli­tics and religion along the street length. Still, a focal point of the aca­demic spirit is Ruminator Books (previously Hungry Mind Bookstore), located just west of the Macalester campus. This literary masterpiece is host to frequent author readings, publishes a quarterly book review, and Is adja­cent to the gourmet restaurant, Table of Contents. Traffic on Grand Avenue is heavy but slow enough to make a living near the street tolerable. Once a farm, then a commuter suburb, the history of Mac-Groveland

Has resulted in an exciting mixture of housing sizes, prices, and designs, with rents and house prices among the highest in St. Paul. The best time to look for an apartment is in late spring to early summer, when students move out and sublet and leases become available.

More than three-fourths of Macalaster Groveland's homes were built before 1940 and range from two- and three-bedroom homes on the east end to luxurious Mississippi Riverfront residences. On and near Grand Avenue, two- to four-story brick apartments from the 1920s are inter­spersed with the brick storefront cafes and retail businesses that make Grand Avenue St. Paul's most lively commercial district. Architectural styles range from 19th-century Tudor-style cottages and meticulous Arts-and­Crafts bungalows to contemporary designs from the 960s. Roomy homes with front porches line the curvy streets skirting Macalester College. Bordering the neighborhood to the north are the impressive houses of Summit Avenue (read more about this elegant boulevard in the description of Summit HIii). Residential streets in Macalester-Groveland are attractive and tranquil, lined with mature oaks and maples.

The bluffs and the Mississippi River gorge lie at the western end of the neighborhood. Land adjacent to the St. Paul Seminary is relatively wild and picturesque, and miles of river walking or bike riding is accessible from Mac-Groveland by the river parkway. If you settle here, you'll thank Bishop Thomas Grace of St. Thomas University for preserving the natural habitat along the river.
