The Arden Hills Master Development project (called Rice Creek Commons) is the revitalization of 427 acres into a welcoming, vibrant community providing residents with a live well | work smart | play hard environment that informs and enhances the greater region to which it is connected.

Well-located at the intersections of HWY 10, HWY 35, and County Road 96 the Arden Hills Master Development is only 10 miles from both the Minneapolis and Saint Paul. Once redeveloped, it will be home to over 1500 new residents and workplace for thousands. As Master Developer, Alatus is guiding the overall design and development of site, an area large enough to fit all of downtown Saint Paul with room to spare.

The project includes a mix of residential, commercial, entertainment, and natural spaces. Together with the local governing body, the Joint Development Authority (JDA), Alatus is working to accomplish the city and county’s shared goals of transforming the long-dormant industrial area into a vibrant community asset serving families, friends, neighbors and colleagues through all stages of life. Once complete, the project will create thousands of jobs and generate millions of dollars annually in county and state taxes.

One of the last large-scale redevelopment opportunities in the Twin Cities, Alatus is crafting this master-planned community by teaming up with several strategic developers including Inland Development Partners on commercial development and Tradition Development Corporation on single-family residential development. Led by Alatus, these developers are creating an exceptional, diverse array of housing options for people in all varieties of ages and stages of life, as well as innovative, thoughtful commercial and corporate spaces.

Alatus is leading the effort to create a vibrant walkable town center district featuring entertainment, restaurant, and service/shopping destinations integrated with housing and civic spaces, parks and trails.The Arden Hills Master Plan goes far beyond just “building buildings” – it is an endeavor to redefine suburban living for the 21st century by embracing the best aspects of both suburban and urban design.
