New Development Updates

Exeter has made strides on their development across the street from our office at University and Raymond. The construction at C&E Flats, just next to C&E Lofts, began this spring and carried through into the summer. As we round the bend into winter, the building managers have started looking for a business to occupy the former armored car business location (entrance on Raymond). With up to 6,000 square feet of space available for lease, the developers have opened a search for a restaurant or retail business to fill the location.

The microunits at 2326 Territorial Rd. behind Carleton Artist Lofts have also undergone significant construction over the past several months. The 79-unit development is well underway and will continue construction into the coming months. 

The Hunt Electric site at 2300 Territorial Rd., being redeveloped by Dominium, has not yet broken ground. The developers plan to give an update to SAPCC's Land Use Committee this Thursday evening at 7:00pm. 

Changes Happening Now with St. Paul Recycling Bins

Sometime between November 29 and January 14, residents in St. Paul will receive a recycling cart to replace their blue Eureka recycling bin. Starting the week of January 16, residents will use their new cart instead of the bin. The carts will conveniently be picked up in the same location as your trash weekly. The majority of the community will have a new collection day, but you can see your collection day on the map that will come with your new bin. SAPCC no longer has recycling bins available at the Council nor will Eureka continue to distribute the square blue recycling bins. The carts will entirely replace the bins.

After 90 days of use, you will be able to request a larger or smaller cart if necessary. The new cart will help you recycle all of the same materials as your bin. You can keep your blue bin, but if you would like to get rid of yours, you can drop it off between January 9 and January 29 at:
Arlington Hills Community Center 1200 Payne Ave.
or Palace Community Center 781 Palace Ave.
