Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant Master Plan

Arden Hills, MN

Hoisington Koegler Group, working with Ryan Companies, prepared a master plan for the redevelopment of 585 acres of land in Arden Hills, Minnesota, known as the Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant (TCAAP). The site is ideally located along I-35W, just ten miles from both downtown Minneapolis and downtown Saint Paul. The master plan includes an integrated mix of retail, office, residential and public open space interconnected with a significant network of trails and sidewalks.

The project has tremendous challenges including contaminated soils, the need for new freeway interchanges and the need to re-sculpt a highly altered industrial landscape. HKGi developed urban design strategies that create ecological corridors as the framework for new development and celebrate parks, parkways and natural open space as the social fabric that tie the future community together.
