Brookfield Renewable wins bid to acquire hydroelectic plant; City of St. Paul forms task force to explore redevelopment options


The Twin Cities Assembly Plant, pictured here around 2006, occupied 122 acres adjacent the Mississippi River in Saint Paul. The original plant site consisted of 200 acres, some of which was eventually sold to private developers for the shopping center and apartment buildings along the eastern edge of the property. However, Ford retained the mineral rights under the parcels that had been sold. Courtesy Ford Motor Company
