Beacon Bluff is an exciting public and private partnership that is restoring economic vitality on Saint Paul’s East Side. Located in the historic Dayton’s Bluff neighborhood, this 61-acre site includes the birthplace of industry leader 3M’s Saint Paul headquarters.
Today Beacon Bluff represents a historic venture to return this site to new productive uses for the 21st Century. Land and buildings are now available through the Saint Paul Port Authority and Cassidy Turley.
Ironton Asset Fund, with deep Saint Paul and 3M Co. connections, in November 2012 finalized its purchase from the Port of the 3M Co.'s former global headquarters building at Beacon Bluff. The fund is now rehabilitating the building in preparation to market it for lease.
