MINNEAPOLIS, July 11, 2022 – Cushman & Wakefield announced today that the firm has arranged the sale of Normandale Lake Office Park, a five-building, 1.7 million-square-foot institutional-quality development in Bloomington, Minnesota.
A multi-market team consisting of David Knapp and Jeremiah Olsen in Chicago; Tom O’Brien, Avery Ticer, Sam Maguire and Dan Phoel in Minneapolis; and Adam Spies in New York represented MetLife Investment Management and Allstate in the sale to private real estate investor Opal Holdings.
