If you live in, work in or visit Downtown Saint Paul, you might soon notice that there is construction activity at the 411 Main building and near Catholic Charities Dorothy Day Center. That’s right – we’re kicking off the first phase of construction for this incredible project. Demolition will likely begin the first week of August, with other activity inside and around the building during the month of July. We will post news and updates on throughout construction.
