CSM Corporation will develop two speculative commercial real estate projects, a 202,000-square-foot office and warehouse facility in Brooklyn Park, Minn., and a 270,000-square-foot bulk warehouse facility in Rogers, Minn.
The Brooklyn Park project, Phase I of the office-park development, will be located on a portion of the 31 acres of raw land in the Northeast quadrant of 93rd Avenue North and Broadway, just south of Highway 610. CSM originally owned 17 acres and recently purchased an additional 14 contiguous acres to create space for this project.
Plans call for a 28-foot clear height office and warehouse facility that will feature upscale design elements including exterior glass. The project, which is listed with Dan Swartz and the CBRE team, is designed to accommodate manufacturing, assembly and light distribution, in line with Brooklyn Park’s goals to attract employment opportunities to the community. CSM is actively seeking final approvals with the City and plans to break ground mid-summer of 2014.
The Rogers project will be located on 17 acres of land CSM has owned since 2007. The bulk warehouse facility will be strategically located in the Northwest quadrant of South Diamond Lake Road and Brockton Lane North, to provide businesses with good access to major transportation avenues such as Interstate-94. The warehouse facility will feature a 32-foot clear height, adding additional capacity to the already successful industrial and warehouse park in the area.
This project is listed with Mark Sims and the Cassidy Turley team. CSM has received municipal approvals and, upon completion of the structural drawings, will break ground in early summer of 2014.
