ST. PAUL, MN – Skyline Towers, a 24-story, 504-unit high-rise that is just off Interstate 94 near Lexington Parkway in St. Paul, is undergoing a $15 million renovation by its new owner, St. Paul-based CommonBond Communities. The building’s previous owner, Sentinel Management, faced growing crime and drug problems and deteriorating conditions, so last year it agreed to sell the property to CommonBond, the non-profit housing and redevelopment organization.
