Event description

Description

The Towerside Innovation District is one of the most significant community and economic development growth opportunities Saint Paul and Minneapolis can claim for generations. The window of opportunity to realize this is now. It will not last long and it’s at risk of being lost.

Towerside is a community born vision of a restorative, healthy arts-inspired community with district-wide systems for stormwater management, heating, cooling, and energy. The Towerside Innovation District has organized to fulfill this vision and create an inviting place with a catalytic atmosphere that will grow a startup economy and inspire a community that is diverse, inclusive, vibrant and responsive to ever-evolving opportunities and discovery.

Come learn who’s involved and what’s happening, what’s next and what’s needed. You are a crucial part of this work - we need your ideas, energy, and participation to capture this opportunity.
