ST. PAUL, Minn. - The future of St. Paul's Seven Corners Gateway site is at a crossroads.

The city's Housing and Redevelopment Authority is seeking proposals from interested developers for the site. The new look could drastically reshape the West 7th Street Commercial Corridor across from the Xcel Energy Center.

The HRA has issued a Request For Proposals seeking developer interest for the 2.38 acre site.

"The Seven Corners Gateway site is one of many excellent opportunities for development in downtown St. Paul," Mayor Chris Coleman said in a news release. "The city's momentum and vitality continue to grow as creative people and industries find new homes and create businesses in our city."

Coleman views the development project as a mixed-use and commercial project that ensures that St. Paul will remain an attractive place to work, live and visit.

The Seven Corners Gateway site is positioned for views of the downtown skyline, the Mississippi River bluffs, and the State Capitol.

Proposals are due Aug. 29.
