Sale of 900 Albion:
The Saint Paul Public Schools Facilities Department, in collaboration with Cushman & Wakefield NorthMarq, is pleased to announce that it is offering its 900 Albion site for redevelopment and is seeking proposals from interested developers.
The vacant, former school site is an approximately 5.4-acre parcel located at 900 Albion Avenue, St. Paul, (also referenced as 848 Albion Ave) and bounded by Lexington Parkway South and 7th Street West.
It has been over 40 years since the triangle-shaped site, known as the Riverside Learning Center, has been used for K-12 educational purposes. “We’re confident that this property has a higher and better use than what the district is using it for,” said Tom Parent, Director of the Facilities Department at SPPS. The district has kept up regular maintenance of the building; however, it's in need of significant renovations. Also, the small size of the building and grounds are challenging to find an efficient educational use for it.
“There is a lot of great things happening on West Seventh,” said Parent, referencing recent public and private investments in the corridor. “But this property isn’t part of the school district’s strategic needs for the next decade, and the resources that go into it are better utilized in supporting our 71 other sites.”
If you are interested in purchasing the 900 Albion site, please review the Request for Proposal (RFP) and all the available information listed below. Questions on the RFP process and the site should be directed to Jeremy Striffler, Cushman & Wakefield NorthMarq via phone at 612-305-2108 or via email at email@example.com.
