Hamm Memorial Plaza
Hamm Memorial Plaza is an aged, raised-circular platform in a traffic island situated between the Historic Hamm Building, the Landmark Center, and the Ecolab Headquarters. It has a flowing water feature, although it seems to have fallen out of use.
This parkland was a gift from the Hamm Family to the City of Saint Paul in 1959. A fountain was comissioned on the site in 1968 to honor Theodore Hamm, William Hamm, Sr. and William Hamm, Jr. The plaza was redesigned and rededicated to the Hamm Family in 1992 with support from The Saint Paul Companies.

The Metro Transit Gold Line transit stop located at the plaza will be enlarged and redesigned to better support this busy transit nexus. The next leg of the Capital City Bikeway will be added along either Wabasha or St Peter Street. In light of these transit developments and the successful revitalization of nearby Rice Park, now is the time to reimagine Hamm Memorial Plaza into a more accessible, usable and green area in order to bring joy to downtown employees, residents and visitors.
