Ramsey County (County) is offering a prime development opportunity in southeastern Maplewood: a distinctive, 88-acre parcel located at 601 South Century Avenue. The County seeks proposals from responders with the ability, experience and financial resources to purchase and develop this property, in alignment with both the principles of Ramsey County’s Economic Inclusion Plan and the City of Maplewood’s Comprehensive Plan.
