Report no. CTS 03-08
At present, development in the St. Paul Central Corridor is occurring piecemeal and lacks an integrative vision. This study?s aim was to devise design approaches that create a district which integrates light industrial job creation and retention with the incorporation of a permanent, value-added public open space armature that performs multiple functions with the ability to adapt to changes in employment. The development of an industrial parkway district along the Pierce Butler route in the corridor would create a linear redevelopment district in the heart of St. Paul. The research team will work in conjunction with public policymakers and planners to establish general goals for the corridor to guide future development of infrastructure, neighborhoods, and specific sites.
