Located at 7500 Olson Memorial Highway in Golden Valley, the three-story Valley Square property has ideal access to three major Twin Cities highways – Highways 55 and 169 and Interstate 394. The property is just south of Golden Valley Country Club and approximately five miles west of downtown Minneapolis.

“Valley Square was an interesting offering because it provides a steady mix of lease income and a chance to add even more value to an underutilized property in a solid location,” said Aaron Barnard, Senior Director for Cushman & Wakefield. Barnard represented AtWater and Concorde in the acquisition and will provide leasing services for the new owner. Cushman & Wakefield also will provide property management services.

Valley Square Corporate Center totals 81,932 square feet (sf), and amenities include a three-story atrium, training room, recently renovated common areas and heated underground parking.

Concorde Properties Group is an affiliate of Duluth, Minnesota-based AtWater Group. AtWater will act as asset manager on behalf of Concorde Properties.

Cushman & Wakefield has worked with AtWater since 2013, when it assisted in the company’s acquisition of the Normandale Place office building in Bloomington, Minnesota; Ridge Point Medical Building in Burnsville, Minnesota; and Park Glen Corporate Center in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. The firm handles leasing and property management for these buildings.

AtWater later awarded the firm management and leasing of four other properties in the Twin Cities, including:

  • Concorde Executive Center: a 104,000 sf office building located at 6160 Summit Drive N. (Highways 100 and 694) in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, with Class A finishes and a state-of-the-art energy management system.
  • The Atrium: located adjacent to the Mall of America at 2626 E. 82nd St. in Bloomington, the nearly 90,000 sf Class B office property is just minutes from the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport and one block west of the metro transit terminal and light rail transit station.
  • Penn American Center: This nearly 70,000 sf Class B office building is in a prime location at 2740 American Blvd W. in Bloomington.
  • Long Lake Executive Center: a 67,159 sf office property located at 900 Long Lake Road in New Brighton, Minnesota, with Class A finishes and easy access to Interstate 694.

AtWater has made significant renovations to each of its properties in the Twin Cities metro, including upgrading to new heating/cooling systems, energy management, restrooms and building systems. Additionally AtWater continually improves the tenant experience with upgrades to common areas, providing additional amenities and increasing building sustainability.

“Our goal is to make our buildings the best quality they can be and energy efficient with the goal of saving operating costs for our tenants,” said Marva Beckman-Lasky, Vice President and Asset Manager for AtWater. “We want our tenants to reside in a building where they can enjoy their work days and be proud to greet their clients.”

Cushman & Wakefield now leases and manages eight properties totaling 645,000 sf on AtWater’s behalf.
