Delta hires Jones Lang LaSalle to sell former Northwest Airlines HQ complex  in Eagan for reduced price of $24.5 million

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 20, 2011 - The Minneapolis office of Jones Lang LaSalle has been hired by Delta Air Lines to sell the former Northwest Airlines headquarters complex in Eagan that Delta acquired when it absorbed Northwest in 2008.

The two-building, 190-acre property is available in full for a reduced price of $24.5 million or in part. The individual parts include:

  • A 273,500-square-foot, four-story office building which incorporates a mix of private offices, open cube space, conference facilities, a group dining area and a kitchen.
  • A 278,620-square-foot industrial-flex building currently used by Delta for flight simulation/training and ideal for reuse as office space, data center, light manufacturing or medical/technical. (This is the first time that this building is being marketed for sale.)
  • Approximately 51 acres of undeveloped land with I-494 frontage that is ideal for office/flex/industrial development.

The property is located off of I-494, just east of I-35E and approximately 6 miles from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Jones Lang LaSalle’s Chris Hickok and Chris Rohrer are the exclusive listing agents.

“This property represents a unique opportunity for the right tenant, developer or investor,” said Hickok, a Jones Lang LaSalle Executive Vice President. “We are excited to take over as the new listing agents on behalf of Delta and are optimistic that we will be able to identify a buyer who can take advantage of all the property has to offer.”
