The parking ramp would be built adjacent to Paragon Outlets' planned, 440,000-square-foot outlet mall in Eagan's Cedar Grove neighborhood.
Eagan city officials unveiled the preliminary designs for a new, $19 million parking ramp on Tuesday, amid debate on whether the ramp should include two levels—as originally planned—or three levels for greater parking volume. The ramp, which will be built in tandem with the Paragon outlet mall project in Eagan's Cedar Grove Redevelopment Area, would provide parking for the 440,000-square-foot mall and other commercial developments built in the area. In the end, the Eagan City Council approved a preliminary, two-level concept plan—with the ability to add a third level later, if needed. A formal version of the parking ramp design will likely be presented at the Eagan Planning Commission's April 17 meeting, and could come back to the council …

City officials originally planned to demolish all of the buildings in the Cedar Grove Redevelopment District, but the recession forced the EDA to reconsider its approach to development in the area, according to Eagan Community …

The Eagan Economic Development Authority receives a market analyst for proposed 400,000-square-foot in the Cedar Grove area. The report says the outlet mall would not compete against a 500,000-square-foot shopping area planned for the Lockheed Martin site
Follow Eagan Patch on Twitter | Like us on Facebook | Sign up for our daily newsletter A market analysis has found that two retail centers proposed in Eagan could coexist without hampering each other’s success. In summarizing the research at Tuesday night’s City Council meeting, Community Development Director Jon Hohenstein said a 400,000-square-foot outlet mall in the Cedar Grove area would offer a different retail experience than a 500,000-square-foot shopping center planned for the Lockheed Martin site. “The bottom line ... is that the traditional retail as being contemplated at the central area and the outlet retail are sufficiently different,” he said. “The two projects would not directly compete and both could be developed, if they …

The Economic Development Authority agreed to give the developer exclusive rights to negotiate for the property, and has hired a consultant to evaluate the local retail market.
Paragon Outlet Partners LLC.'s vision for a 400,000-square-foot outlet mall on a 35-acre site in Eagan is two steps closer to reality following an Eagan Economic Development Authority meeting on Tuesday night.

The open-air outlet mall would house as many as 100 tenants on 35 acres of property in the Cedar Grove Redevelopment Area.
Paragon Outlet Partners LLC. got a warm reception from the Eagan Economic Development Authority on Tuesday night, as more details about the company's proposal for a 400,000-square-foot outlet center emerged. If Paragon secures the necessary approvals from city officials, the company plans to construct between 90-100 high-end outlet stores, including one or two 25,000-square-foot anchor stores, in an open-air, pedestrian-friendly mall that would rival the Albertville outlet center in sheer size. The complex would be located on a 35-acre parcel off Cedar Grove Parkway in Eagan's Cedar Grove Redevelopment Area. Eagan City Councilors, acting in the capacity of the Economic Development Authority, peppered Paragon representatives with questions …

Paragon Outlets wants to build an outlet shopping center and two-level parking ramp near the intersection of Hwy. 13 and Cedar Ave.
After years of work positioning the Cedar Grove Area in southwest Eagan for redevelopment as a community "gateway", Eagan city officials now have a proposal to develop a 400,000-square-foot retail outlet center on the site.
