On Friday, May 4, 2018, Gaughan Brokerage Senior Associate, Tom Opsahl, participated on a panel for the 14th annual Land Development Conference. This conference is hosted yearly by the Minnesota Real Estate Journal at the Golden Valley Country Club.
The topic of Opsahl’s panel was “Commercial Land Development Forecast for 2018 and Beyond.” The panelists discussed the current market conditions, development project updates for 2018, challenges with land development, financing for development projects, and the future of development.
The other four sessions at this year’s conference were “Municipalities: Your Partner for Land Development and What You Need to Know,” “Key Issues to Consider When Structuring Real Estate Joint Ventures,” “Frontiers: Lessons in Greenfield Development,” and “Residential Land Update and Opportunities.” We look forward to next year’s conference and the updates that we will be hearing based on the sessions this year!

St. Paul, MN – July 21, 2017 – Gaughan Companies, Commercial Real Estate Developer and General Contractor, closed on the purchase of 304-308 Snelling Avenue in St. Paul on July 12, 2017. The final decision for the purpose of the new development is still being considered. Gaughan Companies is eager to develop in the city of St. Paul again.
Just off of I-94, the property is within walking distance of the Minnesota United FC Stadium and the Snelling Avenue Metro Transit Green Line. In addition to a new Whole Foods, this ideal neighborhood is also conveniently located near several major universities, including Concordia University, Hamline University, Macalester College, University of St. Thomas and St. Catherine University. Over 42,000 vehicles pass by this corner every day.
The current building was constructed in 1913, and the property has been owned by the same person for nearly 40 years. Gaughan Companies is looking forward to the opportunity to redevelop this site and build a new facility for the community.
