Ryan Companies and the Excelsior Group began construction Oct. 24 of 10 West end, a 343,000-square-foot 11-story class-A speculative office building being built in the West End of St. Louis Park, Minnesota. Ryan Companies will design and build the project with co-developer Excelsior Group. 10 West End is located just four miles west of downtown Minneapolis.
Ryan Companies and Excelsior Group closed on the construction financing on Oct. 1. 10 West End will be the first speculative Class-A office building constructed in more than 18 years in the 1-394 corridor.
Ryan A+E is designing the building and Ryan Construction will build the project. The project will include walkable amenities, outdoor spaces, strong parking ratios and modern on-site amenities. Heavy brick arches below classic punched openings give way to a much lighter glass, steel and wood expression at the top of the building. The outdoor amenity is complimented by the adjacent park and public realm of the West End district.
Leasing is being led by Transwestern Principal Mike Honsa. Leasable space ranges from 8,000 square feet to the entire building with the potential of a second similar-sized tower south of the first building as part of a potential phase two.
