Dayton Parkway Business Center to Offer Smaller Industrial Space in Minneapolis’ Northwest Metro

With an eye on offering a differentiated space in Minneapolis' booming northwest metro, Opus is building Dayton Parkway Business Center, a 132,000-square-foot speculative distribution and light manufacturing facility.

Located on 10 acres at 17600 Territorial Road, the development will appeal to users who want to take advantage of the new Dayton Parkway Interchange but who require smaller footprints. Currently, the submarket is dominated by larger industrial spaces.

Before construction began, TurbinePros, which is a leading North American provider of field services for rotating equipment manufacturers, has signed a lease for more than 87,000 square feet of the facility.

The most recent Census data shows that the northwest metro experienced double-digit population growth over the last decade. City data for Dayton alone shows population growth of 22% and the labor force at its strongest in 20 years, which is good news for companies looking to expand or relocate to area.

Dayton Parkway Business Center is yet another example of Opus' expertise in identifying unmet needs in growing submarkets and developing, designing and building facilities to meet those needs.

Upon completion, Dayton Parkway Business Center will offer:

  • 19 dock doors (expandable to 34)
  • four drive-in doors
  • 28-foot clear height
  • 136 auto parking stalls (expandable to 177)
  • 14 trailer parking stalls
