After riots, St. Paul’s Midway works to turn blight to bright
via Star Tribune
A 4-mile stretch of University Avenue in St. Paul has a slate of housing and retail projects aimed at recovery.
More housing is coming. Friday, a wrecking ball readied to topple the vandalized former U.S. Bank branch that Kraus-Anderson bought at University and Raymond.
The $64 million effort is KA’s latest on University. In March 2019, it paid $31 million for the Midway Marketplace by Hamline Avenue that includes the riot-damaged but restored Cub Foods, TJ Max, Dollar Tree, plus the nearby LA Fitness and shuttered Walmart.
