Louisiana Station Area

Postby Anondson » June 15th, 2018, 10:16 am

While digging around MCWD board meeting agendas I saw that back in a late April board meeting ...

http://minnehahacreek.org/sites/minneha ... Hayman.pdf

... there was mention that the owner of an industrial property, Oxford Industrial Partners, approached the MCWD saying they were looking at redeveloping their 5.79 acres of Minnehaha Greenway adjacent property, that is also a half-block from the future Louisiana Station, “with a focus on future corridor transformation and success.”

It’s one of the few remaining industrial properties that runs directly up to the Creek banks with no buffer besides portions of the railroad wye. It reads like the property owner would like to work with the MCWD in a partnership like was done with Japs Olson so that the development enhances the Greenway but fits in the new.

Glad to see these industrial areas being transformed & rejuvenated.

Anyone heard anything on the old Sam's Club? That seems like a prime property as well.

I heard that Amazon might be taking it for some kind of distribution center.

A certain person that does their maintenance on their lift trucks at the Shakopee facility said that it was a possibility but nothing was final. Just something he had heard.

Itty bit of irony for a Sam’s Club building being filled by Amazon. Heh. It would be a far easier location to recruit employees from Minneapolis to work there instead of Shakopee, so there is that.

I wish it were some other company than Amazon. Their work environment is somewhat less than acceptable. That said, it would be nice to see another entry-mid level employer along SWLRT.
