Preserving the Past, Creating a New Future at The Penfield

The block of 10th Street between Robert and Minnesota Streets has made quite a transformation since July 2012 when ground was broken on The Penfield, a 254 unit mixed-use development. The first residents will move into the building in late November and Lund’s will begin build out of the commercial space in just a few weeks for their grocery store that will open in spring/summer of 2014.

Penfield_Exterior_ViewA02_HR01The Penfield preserves a wall from the former Public Safety Building that once occupied the site and opened in 1930. That building at one time housed three city departments – Fire, Police and Public Health. The preserved wall has the words “Fire,” “Health” and “Police” engraved above the columns. A historical interpretive display of the Public Safety Building along with public art will be installed on the 10th Street side of The Penfield.
