Transwestern’s Minneapolis office has been hired by Florida-based Elion Partners to lease the 416,786-square-foot office portion of City Place, a mixed-use development that will span 100 acres at Interstate-94 and Radio Drive in Woodbury, Minn., a suburb of Minneapolis.
City Place, named for Elion Partner’s vision of bringing a work/play city environment to the suburbs, will be anchored by the existing office building and complemented by restaurants, retail space and a hotel that are slated for construction pending site-plan approval from the City of Woodbury. The work and play elements of City Place will be connected through a series of trails that include a lake and park.
“City Place will be a destination, not just another office property,” said Mike Salmen, a Transwestern partner and leader of the team hired to lease the project, in a written statement. “We haven’t seen anything like this on the east side of the Twin Cities, and people are really going to like what City Place has to offer. City Place will have the amenities, conveniences and services required to attract elite talent and impress clients.”
City Place has been designed through a collaborative process with the City of Woodbury and Kraus Anderson, Elion Partners’ joint venture partner in the development.
