 A busy St. Paul corner will be getting busier and it's left some in the neighborhood concerned.

A 5-story apartment building and Whole Foods grocery store will be built on the corner of Snelling and Selby next year, replacing a bank.

The project has raised traffic and parking concerns from businesses and neighbors.

The Union Park District Council is working with the city and MnDOT to help solve the issues.

But, Union Park District Council President Tim Faust says these problems are actually good for the community. "It's a better problem to have than condemned buildings and vacant lots. It's definitely going to be a positive for the community."

Construction on the project will begin this summer.
