Lunds & Byerlys Proposed Development Listening Session to be held Monday, March 18, 2019

Dear Summit Hill Residents and Grand Avenue Business Owners:

We invite you to attend a listening session at 7:00 pm on Monday, March 18, to learn more about a proposed mixed-use development from Lunds&Byerlys. The session will be held in the Margolis Hall at Mount Zion Temple, 1300 Summit Ave, Saint Paul.

Lunds&Byerlys has approached the Summit Hill Association (SHA) and the Grand Avenue Business Association (GABA) for input about the possibility of a new mixed-use development on the north side of the 700 block of Grand Avenue. This is the site formerly filled by The North Face and Ann Taylor Loft. The Lunds&Byerlys proposed development would include a grocery store and residential housing, along with underground parking. 

This listening session is not an official hearing for any action. At this point in the process, SHA and GABA are the facilitators of notice and communication between Lunds&Byerlys and the community. Several representatives from the City will be in attendance, including City Councilmember Rebecca Noecker.

At the listening session, Lunds&Byerlys will make a presentation, answer questions from those in attendance, and collect commentary about wishes and concerns. Lunds&Byerlys wants to gather community input and apply what they learn to determine the next steps in their consideration of this proposed development. 

Everyone is encouraged to attend! Your participation in a neighborhood discussion about a potential project along Grand Avenue will help us all become better informed about our shared community. 


Hayden Howland, President, Summit Hill Association

Jason Koenig, President , Grand Avenue Business Association
