Mississippi River Learning Center

Saint Paul, MN
Continuing our work along the Mississippi River, 106 Group was part of a multidisciplinary team that developed the schematic design for the Mississippi River Learning Center, which was envisioned in the City of Saint Paul’s 2013 Great River Passage Master Plan. This mixed-use, riverside facility will link Hidden Falls and Crosby Farm Regional Parks, strengthen community access and connection to the Mississippi River, and foster stewardship of the park and river for current and future generations.
Working with the City of Saint Paul and Great River Passage Conservancy, and the design team led by W Architecture, 106 Group led archaeology and architectural history assessments and supported community engagement. 106 Group’s archaeologists and architectural historians contributed research and assessment for resources located near the site. Our research offers direction for the site’s future development.
As part of 106 Group’s community and stakeholder outreach efforts, our team planned and implemented several in-person and virtual community meetings and focus group sessions, and developed surveys to gather broader input to inform site design.
