Olympic plays a part in the South Metro's economic recovery Featured

Written by 

After the recent recession hampered many Minnesota cities and businesses, Olympic Companies is delighted to play a significant role in the recovery process.  In what the Star Tribune describes as “a sign of Eagan’s resiliency”, Olympic has joined with Ryan Companies to develop what might become the largest Outlet Mall in the state. 

Once completed, the 500,000 square foot structure will host over 100 new stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Brooks Brothers, Calphalon, Coach, Nike, and Polo Ralph Lauren Baltimore based Paragon Outlets, the site’s owner, worked with Dalpost Architects to design the structure, which will uniquely join 7 buildings under a common covered walkway, allowing customers all-weather access to any of the outlet’s shops.  Olympic is providing services including Spray Foam, Metal Stud Framing, Drywall, and one of the largest EIFS jobs in the state.  When finished, the single level Outlet mall will provide a significant improvement for the city of Eagan, both in terms of jobs and attracting shoppers.

The key challenges facing Olympic include: the fast paced development; starting with an undeveloped lot, requiring generators to supply power where no electrical lines were previously present; and careful coordination with other sub-contractors, since the sequence of the development follows each construction stage closely.  The close proximity to the airport required careful handling and re-location of a number of fiber optic cables as well.

The Paragon Outlet Mall is scheduled to open in August, 2014, and is located just East of MN-77 (Cedar Ave), on the South side of MN-13 (Sibley Memorial Highway) in Eagan.
