The Star Tribune published an article today—Monday, July 9—featuring Robotics Innovation and CEO Nena Street regarding the future of the St. Paul Ford plant.
The article discusses the Ford plant as one of the potential sites for the Global Robotics Research Park:
While Street has had some conversations about her project and use of the training center with officials from Ford Land, the real estate arm of the Dearborn, Mich.-based automaker, no deal has been struck. In the meantime, she’s scouting sites including the defunct Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant in Arden Hills and the former Delta Air Lines headquarters.
Nena Street, CEO of Minneapolis-based Robotics Innovation, is scouting the Ford site (and others) for something called the Global Robotics Innovation Park, a public-private partnership that would included office and lab facilities. The Business Journal reported on Street’s plans earlier this year; she’s had discussions with Ford, but no deal yet.
