Transwestern Continues Lease-Up at Twin Cities Spec Offices

Transwestern Real Estate Services signed two new tenants to long-term leases at Ryan Companies’ 10 West End, located at the intersection of Highways 394 and 100 in St. Louis Park, MN. Two Harbors Investment Corp., a REIT, will move its headquarters to 34,640 square feet at the Twin Cities property, while Aerotek, a staffing and recruiting agency, will consolidate two west metro locations to 11,776 square feet. 
“The activity surrounding 10 West End remains strong,” said Transwestern principal Mike Honsa, who leads leasing efforts at the building. “We’ve completed nearly 140,000 square feet of leasing so far this year, and I expect more leases to be signed in the coming months.” 
Construction was completed on the 343,000-square-foot 10 West End in January of this year, making it the first Class A speculative office building delivered in the West submarket in more than 20 years.
