Lupe Development Partners acquires Roseville office building, plans multi-tenant conversion project
Firm to relocate offices after multi-tenant conversion
MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Lupe Development Partners, an experienced Twin Cities developer specializing in mixed-use projects and affordable housing in the urban core, announced today that the firm purchased a 23,316-square-foot Roseville office building at 1801 County Road B W in a sale-leaseback transaction with Industrial Fabrics Association International. The developers plan to convert the building to multi-tenant occupancy and relocate the company’s offices to the building in 2022.
“Our portfolio continues to diversify. We’ve had recent success in Woodbury with a similar 1970s office conversion and renovation,” said Steve Minn, vice president and chief financial manager of Lupe Development Partners. “We also have a growing team and want to set them up for success. This property gives us a greater footprint while maintaining a closer proximity to many of our projects.”
Lupe has previously officed in Bloomington and for the last fourteen years in Minneapolis. In addition to offices for Lupe and Industrial Fabrics Association International, there will be approximately 12,000 square feet of office space available for other future tenants. Renovation work is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
