St. Anthony Park - Remodeling Project

  • BACKGROUND
     
    In spring 2016, St. Anthony Park Elementary began the design process for building renovations that is based on SPPS’ 10‐year Facilities Master Plan (FMP) to ensure its school buildings are able to meet the 21st century learning needs of students.
     
    A draft of the project work scope or plan is also available (please note these plans are conceptual designs and do not necessarily represent the work that will actually be done to the school); the project scope in brief:
    • An addition will be built to house the main office, cafeteria and kitchen.
    • A second story will also be built over the current single story to add instructional spaces.
    Break ground: Summer 2017; Completion: Ready for fall 2018
     
    Variances: The approved variances are for site coverage and to allow for less on-site parking than required to maintain as much open outdoor space as possible; variances were approved on January 4, 2017 by the City of St. Paul.
