January 12, 2021

Minneapolis – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announces it has been named the exclusive leasing agent for Lakeside Center, a 152,000-square-foot, Class A office building in the coveted Uptown district of Minneapolis. Transwestern Principals Reed Christianson and Erin Fitzgerald and Vice President Morgan Rethlake will provide leasing services on behalf of the owner, Ackerberg.

“Lakeside Center is truly unique in the Minneapolis market and set apart by its lake views and abundant free parking,” said Fitzgerald. “We are excited that there’s an opportunity for new tenants to office in this great location and take advantage of the exceptional amenities and surroundings to bring their teams back into the workplace for a productive future."

The six-story business center offers exclusive features such as an on-site fitness center, cafe, salon, interior bike storage, conference rooms, multiple third-space areas, generous outdoor areas, and heated garage parking. 

The upper floors of Lakeside Center offer tenants some of the most spectacular views in Minneapolis, with the northeast side overlooking Uptown and the southeast side overlooking lake Bde Maka Ska. The property’s back entrance opens onto a large green space, which leads to a trail and walkways that encircle the lake. These trails are friend for pedestrians, runners, skaters, and cyclists, and in summer the lake is dotted with wind surfers, sailboats and paddle boards. Lakeside Center is digital savvy, dog friendly, and close to everything, making it one of the most iconic and trendy office locations in all of Minneapolis.
