Jones Lang LaSalle hired to lease space in soon-to-be-built Mall of America® office building


​MINNEAPOLIS, August, 2013 — Jones Lang LaSalle announced today that it has been named the exclusive leasing agents for a new office building to be constructed at Mall of America®. After researching potential leasing services, Canadian real estate conglomerate Triple Five Group, Ltd., owners of Mall of America chose to partner with JLL for leasing the project. The building will be called MOA Crossings.

JLL’s Brent Robertson, John Dahl and Ann Rinde will lead the pre-leasing efforts for the 7-story, 175,000-square-foot building, which is expected to open in late 2015 or early 2016. Conveniently located minutes from Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport and attached to the most-visited mall in the country, the building is positioned to be the premier office tower in the Twin Cities.

”We are excited to work with Jones Lang LaSalle on this project,” said Kurt Hagen, Senior Vice President of Triple Five. “MOA Crossings will be a part of a new ‘grand entrance’ to Mall of America, one which will welcome visitors from all over the world. It is important to have a strong office leasing strategy and partner in place to attract key tenants.” 

Robertson, a Jones Lang LaSalle Vice President, called the building “one of the most exciting and unique new office developments to come to the Twin Cities region in years.”

“This building’s location, branding opportunities, amenities and ease of access are truly second-to-none,” he said. “We anticipate no shortage of interest from companies who want to office in a building connected to the Mall of America and all the amenities it has to offer.” 

MOA Crossings provides tenants the very unique opportunity to leverage Mall of America, which welcomes more than 42 million annual guests. Tenants – and their clients – will have direct access to the mall and the many amenities it offers including fine dining, world-class shopping and attractions. The new building is expected to create exceptional work environments for high-performing companies of all sizes. 

MOA Crossings is an important element in the Mall’s expansion, which will also include a luxury hotel and exciting new retail offerings both of which will open in 2015. Mall of America will manage leasing for retail space. The office building will be built atop a new multi-level parking garage between Sears and Nordstrom and will be directly connected to the current mall. .
