I still can’t believe that it made it that long, which was around for 10 plus years. I rarely saw any cars in the parking lot. Prime retail spot in where 27,500 cars cars drive by on a daily basis.
The building has now been remodeled to fit six tenants in which there is 14,500 square feet of retail space available. For being a bad market for vacant space in the commercial real estate arena, this building is 100% leased before it even is delivered.
The tenant that I’m looking forward to the most is Smashburger. I’ve been waiting for this franchise to open an a spot south of the river ever since coming into the Twin Cities market about a year ago, they have been mainly on the north end of the metro.
If you haven’t tried them before, compare them to a Five Guys or In-N-Out. Don’t place them high on the “healthy things to eat” list.
The New Tenants
- Sports Haircuts
- Solo’s Pizza
- Verizon Wireless
- Pearle Vision
- Panda’s Express
Anyone could be called a good anchor tenant except for maybe Sports Haircuts and I’m a little surprised by the Panda Express, I thought those where relative to mainly malls but it landed the end-cap space in the building.
That’s one happy landlord/developer to land such quality tenants in such a short period of time.
