The city of St. Paul received development proposals for a city-owned plot near theXcel Energy Centerfrom Minnetonka-basedOpus Groupand Golden Valley-basedMortenson Development.
The city released the names of the respondents Friday, but not details of their plans or a list of any partners.
The Seven Corners Gateway site, sometimes referred to as Cleveland Circle, is a 2.4-acre piece of land bounded by Smith Avenue,KelloggBoulevard, West Seventh and West Fifth streets.
St. Paulissued a request for proposals in July, looking for a “high-density, mixed-use” project for the site. Responses were due Friday.
City staff plan to evaluate proposals in September and make a recommendation to the City Council by Oct. 8.
It isn’t clear what sort of project Opus Group proposed or if or how it would impact itsplans to redevelop the former Seven Corners Hardware property. The hardware store building on West Seventh Street is about a half-block south of the Seven Corners Gateway site.
The Gateway site is where i the cityspent more than $2 million in 2005 to relocate the historic 1880s-era Victorian mansionknown as the Armstrong-Quinlan house. Various proposals over the years have included an entertainment-type complex like the former Block E in downtown Minneapolis and at one point a plan for a Target store. This site has also been discussed in the past as a possible home for aMinnesota Wildpractice facility.
