Hillcrest, Opus Break Ground on 161,000 SF Industrial Building in Cottage Grove, Minnesota
COTTAGE GROVE, MINN. — Hillcrest Development LLLP and The Opus Group have broken ground on the first building at Southeast Industrial Park in Cottage Grove, about 25 miles southeast of Minneapolis. Completion of the 161,000-square-foot industrial building is slated for this September. North Star Sheets, a corrugated paper manufacturer, will occupy the building. This is the first phase in a multiphase, rail-served industrial development undertaken by Opus and Hillcrest. An additional 24 acres remain undeveloped on the site, which Hillcrest owns, allowing for 300,000 to 350,000 square feet of future development. Hillcrest has retained Eric Rossbach of Colliers International to market the site for lease. Opus Development Co. is the developer, Opus Design Build is the design-builder and Opus AE Group is the architect and structural engineer of record.
