Euclid View Flats was built during a formative period for both the city of Saint Paul and the field of architecture. Displaying a sophisticated design that reflects a late nineteenth-century blending of the Queen Anne and Romanesque Revival styles, the building provided a modern, multifamily alternative to the single-family houses that were more common in the city and, particularly, in the growing Dayton's Bluff neighborhood. It was an important product of Herman Kretz, a major regional architect during a period of rapid growth. For its local significance in the area of Architecture, Euclid View Flats qualifies for the National Register under Criterion C. The period of significance coincides with the completion of the building's construction in 1895.
