Historic Schorenstein Garage to become a home for young couple
The property is the last from the vacant home tour to be sold
The historic Schorenstein Garage has new owners. The property, which is the last to be officially sold from the Dayton’s Bluff Vacant Home Tour, will be converted from a commercial space into a home.
During the Jan. 11 St. Paul Housing and Redevelopment Authority meeting, the sale and development agreement were approved for the property at 216-218 Bates Ave.
The former commercial property will be rehabilitated by Cory Vandenberghe and his fiancée, Tia Helfrich, for their future home, making this particular home sale unique in that it is being rehabilitated by the future occupants themselves rather than a developer.
