Availability of Salvaged Paving Bricks/Stones and Nicollet Mall Granite Pavers
Nicollet Mall Granite Pavers
Nicollet Mall, a twelve-block portion of Nicollet Avenue running through downtown Minneapolis, is known as the main street of the shopping district in downtown Minneapolis. Originally developed in 1967, it was renovated in 1990 with granite pavers, in a series of pink, red, and gray straight-lined grids. The high-quality, durable granite pavers are 2 ¼ inch thick and range in size from one to three feet square. Currently under renovation again, we have over 18,000 Nicollet Mall Granite Pavers available for purchase.

Paving bricks and stones were commonly used to pave streets during the late 1800s and early 1900s. When streets are reconstructed, pavers may be removed or unearthed and recovered in varying conditions. Because the public has shown an interest in making use of old paving bricks and stones, Public Works makes some of them available for purchase.
Salvaged granite brick pavers are available on a first come/first served basis to the general public, as well as to City NRP neighborhood organizations, departments and agencies. Quantities, types and conditions of the materials may vary while supplies last. Once these materials are gone, the supply will not be replenished.
