9200 Hudson Blvd | Lake Elmo, MN
46,000 SF | 9.95 Acres
Cranky Ape called on CRE Partners to assist them with selling 9200 Hudson Blvd in Lake Elmo, MN. The main goal was to maximize the value of the current site and additional, find a new home for the company.
The 9200 Hudson blvd project had numerous challenges. While the site had great visibility on I-94; the buildings were functionally obsolete, the land was long and narrow, and the city of Lake Elmo is not always open to redevelopment. In addition, the sale and purchase of a new location had to happen simultaneously.
CRE Partners worked with the owners on a marketing plan to focus on a very narrow set of buyers to achieve the highest and best use for the site (and highest selling price). After reviewing many offers, we moved forward with a mini-storage developer. CRE Partners helped navigate the environmental issues, city process, and risk involved with the corresponding relocation. Ultimately, the building sold for $2.9M ($2.95M asking price). In addition, the owners sold and purchased a new home on the same day. With a brief leaseback, they were able to smoothly transition into their new building.
