As an economic development agency, we are excited to bring much needed housing and jobs to Saint Paul’s East Side, but not at the expense of health and wellness. Every decision we make will be done through the lens of environmental sustainability.

In our quest to create a carbon-free community, with the first LEED for Communities Platinum certification in the world, we will do all we can ensure natural resources are not depleted in the process. Key features currently being discussed include rooftop solar, geothermal energy, and best-in-class storm management systems.
