The Opus Group® Announces Retail Fully Leased at The Station on Washington


MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - The Opus Group announced today that the retail space at The Station on Washington is 100 percent leased. The committed tenants at this mixed-use living and retail complex, located near the University of Minnesota’s East Bank campus, are Walgreens and Haiku Sushi.

“We’re pleased to attract two great tenants that will offer convenience as well as enhance students’ living experiences at The Station on Washington,” said Matt Rauenhorst, senior director, real estate development, Opus Development Company, L.L.C. “Residential leasing remains strong as students seek apartment living with close proximity to campus and the light rail corridor.”

Making its University of Minnesota campus debut, Walgreens will occupy approximately 7,000 square feet of space and is scheduled to open in August of this year. Haiku Sushi also will open its first campus location occupying 4,000 square feet of space and offering a variety of authentic Japanese entrees and sushi to the university community.

Amy Carlson from Colliers International represented Opus in both transactions. Walgreens was self-represented and Haiku Sushi was represented by Mike Zirbes and Jeff Brown of North Rock Real Estate.

Since breaking ground last fall, The Station on Washington continues to be on schedule with the apartment complex slated to be open in late August 2013 prior to the start of the fall academic semester.  Residential interest in this property remains high with leases signed for more than half of the 97 units.
