Construction projects in Mankato, North Mankato and St. Peter are under way or in the planning process.

Three of the projects are being led by Mankato developer Kyle Smith. He purchased the former Happy Dan’s gas station on Commerce Drive in North Mankato and the former Oasis on Minnesota Avenue in St. Peter.

Both are being converted to commercial properties. In St. Peter, the building was removed. In North Mankato, part of the building was kept and will be remodeled and expanded into a 4,500-foot space.

Smith said he has two of the three spaces leased in North Mankato and some tenants lined up for the St. Peter site. Both should be done this summer.
