Fifty years after it first opened its doors, Roseville Center announced plans to significantly expand the center by redeveloping a part of the property to create new housing, a hotel, a grocery store, and other new retail space. JLL, Rosedale’s management team, will soon submit formal plans to the City of Roseville to begin the process of review and permits for the proposed expansion. The company hopes to begin initial construction work next year on what will be a phased project.
“Rosedale Center is a very successful shopping and retail center because it has continued to grow, evolve, and change,” said Lisa Crain, JLL Rosedale Senior General Manager. “Our vision and these exciting plans build on this success by transforming Rosedale into a place to live, work, eat, as well as shop for even more things than you can today. Not only are we celebrating our 50th anniversary, we are also incredibly excited about the future and making sure this continues be a destination for the region.”
“A strong and vibrant Rosedale Center is important to the City of Roseville. For years, Rosedale has been a key economic contributor and community asset for the city and its residents.,” said Pat Trudgeon, City of Roseville City Manager. “This decision to add additional investment in innovative amenities promises to bring new jobs to the community and continue that trend well into the future. We look forward to working with Rosedale Center to help bring this exciting new project to life.”
“Rosedale is a regional destination that not only brings millions of people to our community, it also enhances the quality of life here through the stores, restaurants, and retail it offers,” said Julie Wearn, CEO of Roseville Visitors Association. “At a time when unfortunately, other retail centers are looking at how to deal with contraction, this is investing with a vision for an even stronger future. Adding more places to live, a new hotel, and other shopping is great news for Roseville and will help us bring more people, events, and excitement to our community and region.”
“Across the country, shopping centers are closing, and we have one in Roseville that is not only surviving but thriving. Rosedale’s plans shows the strength of our community and what we can do to meet the changing needs of our residents.” said Mary Jo McGuire, the Ramsey County Commissioner who represents Roseville. “The future of Rosedale will increase jobs and tax base while providing residential opportunities for people to live, work, and place. Rosedale is a critical part of our local economy and a vibrant economic engine for our region.”
The project will be privately financed and built in phases. The mall’s leadership team is working with different partners for the hotel, housing, grocery store and other new elements and will release additional information as the process moves forward.

The project will be privately financed and built in phases. The mall’s leadership team is working with different retail partners for the hotel, housing, grocery store and other new elements and will release additional information as the process moves forward. The expansion plans closely align with the City’s comprehensive plan. The project will need to secure a conditional use permit for the new housing, something that is required as a part of the city’s zoning code.
The City of Roseville will review the plans as the project moves through the process to secure needed approvals. JLL hopes to be able to begin initial construction work in 2020.
