ST. PAUL (WCCO) – People in downtown St. Paul will likely soon have a place to shop for groceries.

The City Council voted to move forward with plans for an apartment building and grocery store.

The city-funded Penfield project is expected to cost $62 million. It would place an urban-style Lunds store on the ground floor of the six-story apartment building.

The new building would be built on the recently demolished Pedro’s Luggage store site, one block from the Central Corridor light-rail line on the northeastern part of downtown.

According to the Star Tribune, the project hinges on the approval of a $40 million loan from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
