About Treasure Island Center
Treasure Island Center is positioned to rejuvenate the center of downtown Saint Paul in much the same way CHS Field brought new life to the Lowertown neighborhood and Xcel Energy Center stimulated business growth along Kellogg Boulevard and West Seventh Street. While the most visible part of project is TRIA Rink, where the Minnesota Wild practices, there is a lot more to this innovative redevelopment project. Filling in the four levels below the rink are a diverse group of tenants who will add to the vibrancy of Treasure Island Center in their own way. They include Walgreen's, Minnesota Housing Finance Agency, TRIA Orthopaedic, Tim Hortons, Stacked Deck Brewing (opening in November).
