Hamm Plaza

Neighborhood: Downtown

Amount Needed: $815,000 (estimate)

Project Partners: City of Saint Paul Parks and Recreation

Hamm Memorial Plaza is the tip of the arrowhead-shaped formation of historic buildings and landmarks in downtown Saint Paul that includes the Saint Paul Public Library, the James J. Hill Center, Rice Park, Landmark Center and the Historic Hamm Building.

The Metro Transit Gold Line transit stop located at the plaza will be enlarged and redesigned to better support this busy transit nexus. The next leg of the Capital City Bikeway will be added along either Wabasha or St Peter Street. In light of these transit developments and the successful revitalization of nearby Rice Park, now is the time to reimagine Hamm Memorial Plaza into a more accessible, usable and green area in order to bring joy to downtown employees, residents and visitors.
