Heritage Conservation on the Greenline
Historic Saint Paul in 2013 began the Heritage Conservation on the Green Line/Central Corridor Historic Properties Initiative to identify and promote redevelopment opportunities for historic properties along the Central Corridor -- University Avenue -- in Saint Paul.
- Create unique destinations.
- Add vibrancy to and enhance the overall character of the corridor.
- Create collaboration among preservation and development interests.
- Leverage economic development activity and affordable housing opportunities.
- Promote preservation and reuse of buildings with historical, architectural, and cultural significance as effective components of community development, identity, and place-making.
Historic Saint Paul continues to work with various partners, including Neighborhood Development Center, Frogtown Neighborhood Association, and Victoria Theater Arts Center, on a number of University Avenue preservation projects (see featured projects).
HSP’s Heritage Conservation on the Green Line project has been funded by grants from the Central Corridor Funders Collaborative and from and the Arts and Cultural Heritage fund created by the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment and administered by the State Historic Preservation Office of the Minnesota Historical Society.
