About TCAAP Redevelopment

From Former Ammunition Plant to Rice Creek Commons

The City of Arden Hills is partnering with Ramsey County and Alatus LLC to redevelop a portion of the former Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant (TCAAP) that is located within city boundaries.

The proposed 427-acre redevelopment is referred to as Rice Creek Commons and will include:

  • Retail, office and light industrial development
  • A town center
  • Well-defined neighborhoods with architectural diversity
  • A wide variety of housing options to serve young professionals, empty nesters, and seniors.
  • Abundant parks and open space
  • Trails that provide for convenient and safe pedestrian access to commercial areas and other site amenities

A Master Plan was completed in 2016 and the City of Arden Hills, Ramsey County and Alatus LLC are currently negotiating a Master Development Agreement and Cooperative Agreement that will outline the financing and details of the proposed development.

The development will provide new housing, a town center and jobs in a city area that will be the size of downtown of Saint Paul. It's anticipated to increase the population of Arden Hills by 40 percent over the next 15 to 20 years (by 2039).
