Heirloom Property Management has restored an East Hillside home in Duluth to provide 12 modern-style loft apartments and a commercial space that will all be available for lease beginning early this year.

The structure, which housed HTK Advertising until destroyed in a 2014 fire, has been re-branded Redstone Lofts,.

“We are excited to be a part of this investment in our community.  This redevelopment restores and reimagines one of Duluth’s oldest and most iconic homes” said Michael Schraepfer, president of Heirloom Property Management, the developer. “This project provides needed new housing for Duluth and offers an exceptional opportunity to live in this storied historic property,” he said in a news release.

The historic red stone house was built in 1892 by Oliver Traphagen for Chester and Clara

Congdon. It served as their home while their grander house, the Glensheen Mansion, was under construction. In 1975, the home was registered on the National Register of Historic Places. 

Heirloom Property Management is a Duluth-based property management company that has

been investing in the community since its founding in 2014. Redstone Lofts is the second historic renovation of a structure designed by Oliver Traphagen that the company manages.
