Emerging Developments

South St. Paul - A Proven Partner in Transforming Vision to Reality

Currently working through the development process in South St. Paul, the examples below represent the next wave of dynamic and high-quality investment coming to South St. Paul, with opportunities to add jobs, tax base, and high-quality housing.

New South St. Paul Animal Hospital Facility

SSP Animal Hospital New Location



The South St. Paul Animal Hospital, currently located at 501 Concord Street North, has been serving pets and their owners since the 1970s. With the increase in pet ownership in the last few years, it was clear to the South St. Paul Animal Hospital that they would need a larger facility to meet the needs of their clients.   

 The new facility would offer more than twice the amount of space of the South St. Paul Animal Hospital’s current facility. In addition to the vet clinic, the building would offer several commercial suites for other commercial users. This new facility will offer a modern space to meet the needs of the community’s pets for years to come.


Watson Trading LLC will be developing a multi-tenant commercial building on the vacant  EDA-owned property on Concord Exchange that sits between Footh Auto Sales and Stockyards Tavern & Chophouse. The multi-tenant building will be home to a specialty grocery store called Asian Mart. Today, Asian Mart operates out of a small storefront in Burnsville which they have outgrown. Asian Mart offers a variety of grocery products as well as a deli counter with prepared foods such as roasted chicken, barbeque skewers, and fried fish. Asian Mart will be an asset to those who live and work near the business by providing additional options for groceries and prepared meals.

Pet Fresh Dog Wash

When the Linn Companies purchased the former Kaposia Convenience Center for redevelopment in 2021, they also purchased the gas station kitty corner to Kaposia Convenience which the same individual owned. Now that the Holiday gas station is operational, the Linn Companies is pursuing redevelopment of the small, underutilized gas station into a Pet Fresh Dog Wash. 

The Pet Fresh Dog Wash facility in South St. Paul will be the first Pet Fresh facility not attached to a Tumble Fresh Laundry. Additionally, the South St. Paul facility will have a full-service groomer who will operate out of the building. This facility is the second facility that will increase the number of services available to South St. Paul pet owners.
