Hopkins-based- real estate development firm the Beard Group is back with a second phase of their luxury apartment building “the Yards”. The "Backyards" will offer an additional 126 units including a mix of studio, one-bedroom and, two-bedroom units.
The Backyards will offer the same premium amenities as the Yards, including a fitness center, community room, underground parking, and a rooftop deck. In addition to premium amenities, the Backyards will feature an interactive wall art display that highlights the city and its history. The display will include a panel showing the Mississippi River surrounded by historic South St. Paul locations including Kaposia Village and the stockyards. Both the Yards and the Backyards will have interactive, cow-related art that embraces the city’s history and keeps the legacy of the stockyards alive even as the city transitions into a new era.
