Plymouth Stevens House, LP, a single asset entity, acquired and substantially rehabilitated the Plymouth Avenue Townhomes and Stevens House, a scattered site development of Section 8 and Section 236 housing.pat02

The majority of the buildings that comprise Plymouth Avenue Townhomes were built in 1974 in the Near North neighborhood of Minneapolis. Although these townhomes were rehabbed in 1993, they suffered significant damage from the 2011 tornado that swept through North Minneapolis.

Stevens House was built in 1971 in the Whittier neighborhood of South Minneapolis.  67 of its units receive project-based Section 8 rental subsidy; an additional 9 units receive Section 236 subsidy. The Section 8 contracts have been preserved and extended by the new ownership.sh03

Case management and support services for residents of the long-term homeless units are provided by Lutheran Social Services of Minnesota.
