Pedro Park
Project Overview

Project Description:

This project will develop a master plan and cost estimate for the phased development of critical parcels for a new downtown park within the block bounded by 10th, Robert, 9th and Minnesota Streets.

Project Background:

A park is called for at this location based on the Fitzgerald Park Precinct Plan, adopted by the Saint Paul City Council as part of the Comprehensive Plan in 2006. Redevelopment of the area surrounding this park includes The Pointe condominium (290 units) on the west,  Rossmor (129 unit) building on the east, and City Walk (228 units) on the south.  Apartment construction and a grocery store are scheduled to begin on the north side of the park in the near future. The Pedro family donated the property in the northeast corner of the park site, for use as a portion of this park.  Demolition of the Pedro building occurred in 2011. 

A much needed outdoor park and gathering space will be created at the site for this new neighborhood.  Development of this space into urban green space will add value to all adjacent development and help create a sense of community in an area of downtown that has no near by outdoor gathering area. It will help spur other area development and become an important anchor to the well being of this new downtown community.

NEXT MEETING:  Design Advisory Committee Meeting: to be determined
