LHB designs award-winning business center

The Saint Paul Port Authority and United Properties’ Midway Business Center in St. Paul received a 2017 Award of Excellence in the Light Industrial – High Finish category from NAIOP Commercial Real Estate Development Association’s Minnesota Chapter.

LHB designed the multi-tenant office warehouse that was the first of its kind in the nation to receive LEED CS-Silver pre-certification. The 190,000 square-foot project, located where the former Saint’s stadium buildings stood, included an extensive brownfield site remediation plan, including a stormwater treatment system. The building also features a 40 KwH photovoltaic system that produces enough energy to power the building exterior and parking lot lighting.

Founded in 1975, NAIOP Minnesota has been a major factor in the growth of Minnesota-based businesses and a significant contributor to the economic well-being of the hundreds of local communities in which members work and invest.
