11:30 AM-1:15 PM
Hilton Downtown Minneapolis
Urban rentals are a hot topic in Minnesota’s commercial real estate landscape. There has been a significant demand for, and in turn an influx of, urban rental developments throughout the Twin Cities and Minnesota. Who are developers targeting with this product and how might your business be affected by this and other similar urban rental/mixed-use developments? This case study will focus on the Oxbo mixed-use development in downtown St. Paul, which hosts an interesting combination of urban rental and retail uses.

The panel will discuss how the site and mix of retail was selected, how leasing was addressed and maximized, how the project was designed, and the manner in which the project was financed and ultimately sold. They will also share the nature and extent of the challenges they experienced during development, and they will provide their perspectives on interfacing with the City of St. Paul and other Minnesota governmental bodies associated with the project, as well as why this location was selected as compared to other potential alternatives in the Twin Cities.
