We track real estate development, including new restaurants and retail... like this place below!

Smorgie's | NOW OPEN | 150 Smith Ave N


We’ve struggled to find the right words and to be honest, still haven’t. However, we know we can’t remain silent.

We care so deeply for this community and the individuals that make Saint Paul the place it is.

What has happened in the last week is unbelievable. The murder of George Floyd has us speechless, the protests have us listening, and the destruction of numerous buildings throughout Saint Paul, Minneapolis and surrounding cities has us looking for ways to help. We want to ensure that everyone knows that we stand with and support the Black community.

The Development Tracker has always been about the community. While we may report on development, we know that what makes the cities we track development within the great places they are isn’t the buildings, but rather it’s the people. With everything that has happened in the last week we want you to know that we’re listening, we’re learning, and we’re changing a few things going forward.

You might notice our website and accounts going silent for a bit when it comes to development posts. We’re taking some time to learn about how we can help our communities and use our platforms to do so.

For the next week or longer we will be using our stories as a platform for ways to help out the community. In addition, at the top of our website you will find a link to organizations and businesses that you can volunteer at or donate to along with drop off locations.

If you have any other ideas for ways that The Development Tracker can help our communities, please feel free to contact us here.

Stay strong. We are all in this together and we will work to bring change.
