JLL closes sale and financing of a seven-property industrial portfolio in the Twin Cities
The 96%-leased portfolio totals 376,218 square feet and is located in Roseville, Oakdale and Woodbury, Minnesota
MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 3, 2023 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of and arranged acquisition financing for a seven-property industrial portfolio totaling 376,218 square feet in Roseville, Oakdale and Woodbury, Minnesota.
JLL marketed the portfolio on behalf of the seller, Link Logistics, procured the buyer, Minneapolis-based Biynah Industrial Partners, and arranged the acquisition financing.
The portfolio is 96% occupied by 18 tenants covering a wide range of industries, including medical technology, manufacturing, building materials, apparel accessories and more. This is on par with the market’s total vacancy, which JLL’s Industrial Insights Minneapolis-St. Paul Q3 2022 notes as 4.5%, resulting from the strong tenant demand in the area with 11 million square feet of tenants actively in the market.
The buildings offer 17’-20’ clear heights, an average of seven dock doors each, ample car parking and market office finish. The properties include:
- 6744 33rd St. North, Oakdale, MN
- 6866 33rd St. North, Oakdale, MN
- Carver Lake, 2280-2310 Ventura Dr., Woodbury, MN

- Granada I Business Center, 3350 Granada Ave. N, Oakdale, MN
- Granada II Business Center, 3400 Granada Ave. N, Oakdale, MN
- Granada III Business Center 3220 Granada Ave. N, Oakdale, MN
The assets are well located within infill submarkets inside the Interstate 494/694 loop and are within a 20-minute drive of downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. Tenants of the properties are positioned to reach millions of people in major cities within a few hours’ drive, including Madison (3.5 hours), Milwaukee (4.5 hours) and Chicago (6 hours).
