Three-Building Portfolio in Highly Sought-After Submarket Trades for $22.3 Million

August 04, 2021

Minneapolis – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announces its Investment Sales team has arranged the sale of a three-building, 474,669-square-foot industrial portfolio at 14600 21st Ave. North in Plymouth, Minnesota. Transwestern’s Mike Salmen, Alex Baron, Frank Richie and Harrison Wagenseil, along with Ten-X Commercial, brokered the $22.3 million sale to The Meritex Company on behalf of an undisclosed seller.  

“This asset is an excellent value-add opportunity for Meritex,” said Salmen. “By redeveloping the property into a modern industrial business park, we expect them to see a quick and successful lease-up.”

Formerly the site of Nilfisk Advance, the 14600 21st Ave. North portfolio is within the Plymouth Industrial Park in the West submarket of Minneapolis-St. Paul, which has historically been one of the strongest industrial submarkets in the Twin Cities area. Plymouth, a thriving first-tier suburb and the state’s 7th largest city, consistently ranks as one of the top places to live and work in Minnesota.
