The purchase of the Ford Site by Ryan Companies kicks off the development of the 21st Century Community envisioned by the City of Saint Paul. This 135 acre site along the Mississippi River will be a livable mixed-use addition to Highland Park that will support walking, biking and transit, and provide services, jobs and activities. Development will include clean technologies and high quality design for energy, buildings and infrastructure.
