(St. Paul, MN) — The state is working to sell a small warehouse in St. Paul, which was originally envisioned as a potential temporary morgue site during the pandemic. The former Bix Produce Co. building was purchased for around five-point-five-million dollars to possibly store bodies from COVID deaths, but it has mostly been used to store PPE. Officials now say they could make a small profit from selling the warehouse to the St. Paul Port Authority, which plans for the building to be part of their efforts for inland redevelopment. Some critics say they worry the local government agency will not be able to find a private buyer for redevelopment and will instead have to use public money to maintain it.
