Era on Excelsior is a pet-friendly community. Learn about our policy here.

Our community uses PooPrints, which is the first and largest commercial DNA Waste Management Program. Using a genetic database of dogs with DNA collected from cheek swabs, we are able to collect DNA from any unscooped pet waste and compare it to the database to identify who hasn't picked up after their pet. This helps to promote responsible ownership, protect the environment and expand pet access in our community.

The 4D Housing Incentive program is a recent initiative aimed at boosting and maintaining the supply of affordable housing in St. Louis Park.  We have committed to keep at least 40% of units affordable at our property.



Due to the household income limit, there is also a cap on the maximum rent that can be charged.  This measure guarantees that rent remains affordable for eligible tenants residing in 4D units.  As long as you remain in the unit, the rent will continue to be restricted.  We cap the annual rent increases during your tenancy to a maximum of 5%.



To qualify for a 4D unit, your total household gross annual income must be below 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI) for your household size as published annually by Minnesota Housing.  Before moving in, you will need to submit documentation of your household income.  We will assess your eligibility based on the information provided. 


Documentation of your household income is required only at move in during the application process.  You do not need to recertify your income annually.  Once you have moved in you remain eligible for the program.
