Recently purchased a residential triplex on Grand Ave in Saint Paul and the garage is in horrible condition. We are interested in tearing it down and replacing it with a three car garage with two separate living units above it. This would require some serious planning and foresight so we are looking for any architects with that kind of experience. Please recommend any good ones you’ve worked with.
@Vince Coffeen - I suggest Sylvia Frank at Carlson Frank Architects in St Paul. I've used them for several of my triplex builds and are extremely knowledgeable. Additionally, before you get in too far, you should make sure you understand what you can do and can't do and they have a lot of experience in St Paul with zoning especially in the area you are located.
