Hennepin County Land is the result of a collaborative effort amongst real estate, planning and development professionals in Hennepin County. There will be several contributors to the site as it develops.
As the economy turns and we start the next wave of development in the Twin Cities area, we wanted to chronicle and provide insight and ideas on land development as well as projects and areas of redevelopment in Hennepin County. Redevelopment will be a huge opportunity for investors and contractors in the coming decade. New development is starting to show signs of hope especially in northwest Hennepin County in Plymouth, Maple Grove and Medina. The new construction market is growing again and we expect commercial services development to follow.
