The Vikings and Ramsey County released two conceptual images illustrating the various uses that could be developed around the proposed new stadium in Arden Hills. Both the summer and winter scenes represent the potential development as a result of remediating the former Twin Cities Army Ammunitions Plant (TCAAP) site.
The summer scene portrays various outdoor activities, including running and biking trails that could extend along the eastern edge of the site connecting to the Wildlife Corridor. Multi-use practice fields could be available for youth, high school and amateur sports, including football, lacrosse and soccer. The “main street” concept beyond the football fields could include a mixed-use corridor of retail, residential, commercial office and park space surrounding a community pond.
The winter scene provides a closer view of the “main street” concept, which depicts a winter destination of cross-country skiing, ice-skating on the community pond, hiking and outdoor fun around the fire pits. The “Lake House” adjacent to the pond could provide indoor and outdoor space for community events, adjacent to the main street restaurant and retail corridor.
