The East Yard Co-op Tiny Home Village info session

On Wednesday, Sept. 20, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., come to Twin Cities Trapeze Center, 719 Minnehaha Ave. E., to learn more about the planned cooperative tiny home village near Payne Avenue and Phalen Boulevard from developer Loren Schirber.

The East Yard Tiny Home Cooperative will be located on the East Side of St. Paul at 627 Bush Ave. and Payne Ave. It will be located in an urban area on a three acre piece of land. The area is near railroad tracks and industrial commercial properties and The East Yard will have a gritty industrial feel. It will contain 52 permanent, on-the-grid tiny homes that are between 280 square feet and 530 square feet with affordable cooperative ownership opportunities. The East Yard will also contain a community center, and shared resources such as community gardens, chicken coops, and beehives.

At the heart of this intentional community will be the community center. This will be a space where people can gather. There will be a large open floor plan centered on the kitchen where parties can be hosted and events can be held. Shared laundry facilities will also be available. The second floor will have two bedrooms available for rent for guests and will house the onsite property manager. The developers hope to acquire and move the historic Francis M. Williams House from across the street at 656 Bush Ave. An extensive historic remodel will be undertaken to add a front porch and remodel the interior.
