​MINNEAPOLIS – The Opus Group (Opus) announced today plans for a 96,000-square-foot speculative industrial office and warehouse facility in Plymouth, Minnesota. Construction is slated to begin early this month.

“This project emerged from the great partnerships we have in the brokerage community,” said Phil Cattanach, director, real estate development, Opus Development Company, L.L.C. “We worked closely with our broker contacts to identify this opportunity, and Opus has the financial wherewithal and strength to move forward on a speculative basis. The site is in a desirable area with limited available space and we’re already seeing strong interest from potential tenants.”

Additional features include the ability to accommodate users requesting a higher percentage of office space, ESFR sprinkler systems, five loading docks and parking for 204 cars. The building will be ready for tenant occupancy by January 2016.
