South St. Paul - A Proven Partner in Transforming Vision to Reality

South St. Paul is proud that the businesses represented below have chosen our City for their long-term commitment and investment.

Rihm-Kentworth South Flagship

Early Rihm

In 2017, Interstate Development completed build-to-suit construction of a 63,000 square foot dealership, headquarters offices, and service facility for commercial truck dealer Rihm-Kenworth at 425 Concord St. South. The site was a former meat-packing plant that was acquired, demolished, and cleaned up by the South St. Paul Housing and Redevelopment Authority in 2015 - 2016 prior to sale to the developer in early 2017. The $11+ million dollar project was aided throughout the process by grants from DEED, Met Council, and Dakota County, and today over 55 employees, averaging $75,000 in annual salary, serve their customers and the community at the business.

MidWestOne Bank, Southview Branch

MidWestOne Bank

In 2017, MidWestOne Bank purchased vacant property at 920 Southview Boulevard from the South St. Paul Economic Development Authority for their brand new, 5,000 square foot branch with drive-thru. The site was formerly an auto repair shop, bar and grill, and single family home that were dilapidated when the City purchased and demolished them to prepare the site for redevelopment. The bank was designed and constructed to complement the scale and character envisioned for Southview Boulevard when it’s reconstructed in 2018.

Cobra Transportation Services Headquarters

Cobra

Cobra Transportation Services is a premiere logistics and intermodal service company who chose South St. Paul as their “home base”. After years of renting space in other communities, Cobra was ready to own their own facility so that they could grow their employment base and depth of services, and was attracted to 235 Hardman Avenue South for its convenient location, access, and business-friendly community found in BridgePoint Business Park.
