Riverfront Properties is a nearly five-acre site located at the southwest intersection of Wabasha Street and Kellogg Boulevard, overlooking the Mississippi River in downtown Saint Paul.
After deconstructing the former Adult Detention Center and Ramsey County Government Center West buildings to prepare the site for new development, Ramsey County entered into a preliminary development agreement with AECOM. The proposed $788 million development with four new towers will transform how downtown residents, workers and visitors connect with the Mississippi River. Proposed private development could yield more than $15 million in new property tax revenue per year.
Ramsey County and AECOM are in the process of creating technical engineering and design documents, seeking regulatory clearances, initiating public engagement activities, and starting negotiation of a development agreement. Construction on the site is anticipated to begin in 2020 or 2021.
