This top-floor space is the crowning touch on the conversion of the 13-story Lowry (formerly known as the Lowry Medical Arts Building) into loft-style condos.

In many Twin Cities high-rise condos, the top floor often is reserved for high-style luxury living. But this 5,000-square foot penthouse surpasses expectations with Italian marble floors, a gourmet kitchen and two levels, offering panoramic views of downtown St. Paul landmarks and the Mississippi River.

Designed to mimic a Manhattan lifestyle, the condo combines Art Deco-style lighting and modern detailing with traditional crown molding and warm walnut woodwork. "It blends classic luxury with modern elegance," said Anna Dalton, design director of the project and owner of Ultimate Style Interiors.

Dennis Breining, the listing agent for Coldwell Banker Burnet, described the condo as "the type of home you might see in Architectural Digest in the 1940s," but with high-tech features such as a programmable lighting system and a theater room with 52-inch plasma TV and surround sound.

Other highlights include a second-floor skyline room with floor-to-ceiling glass, a massive walk-in closet off the master bedroom with custom walnut cabinets and a private terrace.


The home is listed with Dennis Breining, Coldwell Banker Burnet, 612-759-7984.
