What Should Go Here? Old State Farm Building

A community center? A casino? What should be done with the former State Farm building in Woodbury.

While sitting outside at last week, I overheard a couple of guys talking about the in Woodbury.

One said, mostly tongue-in-cheek, that it might be a good spot for a casino.

After posting this nugget on our Patch Facebook page, it got a number of responses—and it seemed to make sense for the old State Farm building to be the next installment of our new feature: “What Should Go Here?”


The most positive response was to a suggestion that the building, just off Interstate 94 along Radio Drive, be made into a community center.

Does that sound like a good idea? (Or are you on board with a casino?)

Let us know what you think should go in that space in the comments section below.

The new Arctic Cat (Arctic Cat Inc.) World Headquarters. They're going to have to move closer to a major city to stay competitive on a global scale. And they're already an awesome representation of what a MN company can grow to be.

It is on the tax rolls, just because State Farm isn't using the building, they still own it and are paying taxes

Check with Merrill Corporation in St. Paul. They have quite a few employees who live nearby.

Somebody just emailed me asking if there has ever been any consideration to making this a college. Not a bad idea either.
