The BLEND award is expanding to St. Paul!

BLEND recognizes and rewards new remodels, constructed homes, and a multitude of other projects that fit into the fabric of the neighborhood. This prestigious award was created in 2007 in Minneapolis to encourage sensitive redevelopment that:

1) builds upon the qualities that make your neighborhood unique and livable
2) respects surrounding properties
3) encourages diverse and innovative design compatible with the neighborhood


The new EcoBlend award also incentivizes sustainability in BLEND awarded projects. Professionals and St. Paul residents will makeup a jury that judges any and every project from 2013 onward, regardless of cost or size. Submit a project, nominate a neighbor, or even talk to architects or builders you think are doing a good job blending! Submission guidelines and additional details can be found online at
