Carlson, a business travel management company, has begun a multifaceted remodel and modernization of its world headquarters – 701 Carlson – at 701 Carlson Parkway in Minnetonka, Minnesota. The building will also offer space for lease to outside tenants for the first time. JLL is handling the leasing duties.
The multimillion-dollar project includes full building renovations to the 268,000-square-foot landmark. The project will begin in the fall of 2018 with an expected completion date in the summer of 2019.
Building updates will include a new lobby, fitness facility with possible adjoining outdoor area, conference and training center, and a new café with a designated coffee bar.
For the first time, multi-tenant space in 701 Carlson will be available for lease to tenants outside of the Carlson company. The space available for multi-tenant lease includes 58,000 square feet spread across the upper floors of the tower. Carlson will retain its world headquarters in the building.
“701 is a trophy asset along the 394 corridor and this renovation will take an already beautiful building and elevate it even more,” said Jon Dahl, JLL Managing Director. “We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Carlson, to deliver a best-in-class environment for their employees, tenants and guests.”
RSP is the architect for the project. The JLL Agency Leasing Group responsible for the lease-up includes Jon Dahl, Brent Robertson, Sam Maguire and Andrea Fischer.
