Historic Lowertown Lofts + Apartments
Landmark Living in Downtown St. Paul
For some, downtown living isn’t an “adventure”—it’s the natural expression of their own indie spirit. If that’s you, The Jax offers the authentic St. Paul apartment lifestyle you crave.
Surrounded by the preserved art and architecture of a true Lowertown landmark, you’ll experience a neighborhood connection that makes you feel at home and inspired. Inside, evocative art, high-end amenities, soaring ceilings and copious natural light illuminate St. Paul’s historic soul without compromising modern comfort. Out the door, Mears Park, CHS Field and the Metro Green Line are just a short walk or bike ride away.
At The Jax, we’re not living in the past. We’re making history. Come join us.

Ta-Coumba Aiken + The Jax
Artist, activist and honorary “Mayor of Lowertown,” Ta-coumba T. Aiken is a world-renowned creator of public art—including The Jax/Gillette Children’s mural that adorns our building. Photographed by people from around the world, the mural has become the most iconic symbol of Lowertown. Unofficially titled “Stay Nice,” the work is Ta-coumba’s recreation of pieces completed by critically ill or disabled children at Gillette Children’s hospital through the Children’s Healing Arts Initiative. The project brought great joy and healing energy to these children, who were able to freely express their hopes for themselves, their families and the world.
Ta-coumba has been creating some of Minnesota’s most acclaimed art since the early 1970s. His works can be found in public and private collections including those of the Walker Art Center, The McKnight Foundation, General Mills, Herbie Hancock, Taj Mahal, and Maya Angelou. In addition, The Jax has commissioned a new interior painting from the artist, whose ultimate goal is to create art that heals hearts and souls. We at The Jax endeavor to impart this spirit of kindness and compassion within our own community, Lowertown and beyond.
