Metropolitan Hardwood Floors leased a 16,063-sq.-ft. distribution facility in the Minneapolis suburb of Eagan.
Metropolitan Hardwood Floors is the exclusive distributor of Kentwood and Evoke flooring lines and also handles many other manufacturers.
It was the 15th deal that Bruininks has done with Metropolitan Hardwood Floors, totaling approximately 340,000 sq. ft.
The hardwood flooring distributor is growing quickly in Minnesota and needed to establish a physical presence near Minneapolis and St. Paul, according to the company's real estate agent, Brian Bruinkinks of The Andover Co./Corfac International. Eight deals have been done in the Seattle area where the flooring distributor's U.S. operations are based, while other transactions have been completed in Omaha, Nebraska; Denver, Colo.; and a recent lease in Austin, Texas.
In Eagan, Metropolitan Hardwood leased space in Flagship Business Campus II at 915 Blue Gentian Road, Suite 600. The 24-ft. clear-height distribution facility features freeway visibility and offers 1,850 sq. ft. of office area with the remainder warehouse.
