Skyline Tower is a large low-income high rise apartment complex in Saint Paul, Minnesota. The building is also often called Skyline Tower, St. Anthony Tower, 1247 St. Anthony or Ghetto in the Sky. At 240 feet (73 m), it is the largest single HUD-subsidized building in Minnesota, and the 22nd-tallest building in Saint Paul. With over 500 units it is the largest single-building subsidized housing complex in the U.S. west of Chicago. The building is run by CommonBond Communities, the largest developer or owner of affordable rental housing in Minnesota. The nonprofit bought the building in 2000 with the help of U.S. Bank. The building was previously owned by Skyline Towers Co and managed by Sentinel Management Co.
