The Capitol Region Watershed District (CRWD) broke ground on its new multimillion headquarters in the Midway area of St. Paul last week.

The CRWD, which plans to spend $7.3 million on the renovation of the existing building at Aldine Street and Thomas Avenue, will move staff into the building when construction is finished this fall.

The new space is being designed to utilize green-building principles, such as stormwater-management practices and energy-efficiency measures to conserve resources. The building is intended to meet gold LEED standards.

The facility will also have gathering space for community and partner organizations to use, a watershed learning center and a pocket park.

MSR Design is the architecture firm for the project and JE Dunn is the construction manager.

CRWD offices are currently located off Energy Park Drive, not far from the new location.

The district works to protect, manage and improve water resources in portions of St. Paul, Roseville, Maplewood, Falcon Heights and Lauderdale.

Cantel Medical will move into Sleep Number’s old office

New Jersey-based Cantel Medical will occupy the Plymouth office that bed maker Sleep Number Corp. moved out of last year.

Cantel, which is a leading provider of infection prevention products and services, will consolidate several of its Plymouth offices into the 160,000-square-foot building near Hwy. 169 and Bass Lake Road.

Cantel will be moving 500 employees into the building in the fourth quarter of this year.

Dave Paradise, Sydney Johnson and David Itzkowitz of Cushman & Wakefield represented Cantel in the lease negotiations. Bob Revoir of Cushman & Wakefield represented the building owner.

Sleep Number, formerly known as Select Comfort, moved about 900 employees from Plymouth to downtown Minneapolis last fall.
