The COR (Center of Ramsey) is the City of Ramsey’s downtown development. This 300+ acre development is a true, transit oriented and walkable, urban development. The COR is centered on U.S. Highway 10/ U.S. Highway 169 and the Ramsey Northstar Commuter Rail Station. This development with a mix of uses is home to a long list of successful projects including residential, retail, office, recreation, government facilities, and much more. 

The COR, known formerly as Ramsey Town Center, was purchased by the City of Ramsey in 2009. About 130 acres of land is available for development in The COR today; about 90 acres is City-owned. Located directly adjacent to The COR is 90 acres of additional land available for commercial (retail) development.
