Lunds & Byerlys has announced it will be an anchor store at the major new housing development on the former Ford site in St. Paul's Highland Park neighborhood.

The Twin Cities grocery chain says it plans to open a 51,000-square-foot store at the 122-acre Highland Bridge development in 2022, signing a lease with developer Ryan Companies for a spot in a mixed-use building that will also house 230 apartments.

It will eventually replace Lunds & Byerlys' current store at nearby 2128 Ford Parkway, which will stay open until the new store is finished.

The new store will be 20% larger than the existing store, a press statement issued on behalf of L&B and Highland Bridge developer Ryan Companies said Tuesday.

It's the first major retailer to be announced for the long-planned development project, which will eventually see the creation of 3,800 housing units, 265,000 square feet of office space, and 150,000 square foot of retail space in western St. Paul.

"It has been with a tremendous amount of pride that we have served the Highland Park community for more than 37 years, and we’re excited to open a new store less than a block away that will create an enhanced shopping experience for our customers,” said Tres Lund, CEO of Lunds & Byerlys.

"This new store will be nearly 20% larger than our current store, so we can meet the needs of today’s customers and the many future customers we’ll serve as the community continues to grow."

"Lunds & Byerlys is the perfect anchor to the retail at Highland Bridge," said Maureen Michalski, Vice President of Development at Ryan Companies. "Grocery is a critical component to the success of a neighborhood, and no one can match Lund’s passion for quality and their long-term commitment to the Highland Park neighborhood.":
