About TRIA Rink
TRIA Rink is located on the fifth floor of Treasure Island Center in downtown Saint Paul. This unique redevelopment project saw the transformation of a 1960s era department store, which had been vacant since 2013, into a modern, mixed-use facility. TRIA Rink is a true community asset with six public locker rooms and seating for 1,200. Up to 5,000 hours of ice time will be available to the public each year, driving more than 600,000 people to downtown Saint Paul each year. Tenants include the Minnesota Wild, Hamline University men's and women's hockey teams and the Minnesota Whitecaps of the National Women's Hockey League.

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.
