Welcoming development with an eye to the future

Sandstone, a growing town in northern Pine County, is a hub for healthcare and outdoor recreation. The city nestles along the banks of the Kettle River, where residents enjoy Minnesota’s best whitewater kayaking in summer and ice climbing in winter in a municipal park along the town’s namesake cliffs. Between its natural beauty, livability, and strategic location, Sandstone is the perfect place to do business!

Sandstone is a regional medical and retail hub, and home to some of the largest new development on the I-35 corridor. In 2017, Essentia Health completed a new hospital on the city’s 160 acre business park, which also features a new assisted living facility and credit union. This new development along the highway corridor complements a thriving downtown and the scenic riverfront on the city’s eastern edge.

116 acres in the park remain vacant and ready for development. Road and utility infrastructure into the park was completed in 2017, and numerous lots are ready for immediate development. Tax increment financing and an array of additional incentives are available to prospective projects. It sits conveniently near the midway point between the Twin Cities, Duluth, and St. Cloud, providing easy access to markets in all three metropolitan areas.

Sandstone is a cozy small town ideal for residents of all stages of life, from young families looking for a safe and uncongested home and retirees looking for a rural living with easy access to state of the art healthcare facilities. Sandstone residents enjoy a low cost of living, strong local job growth, and new school facilities.
