The Sons of Norway have determined it’s time to find a new home as the cultural organization puts its Uptown property on the market and begins the search for a new headquarters.
After more than 55 years at its location at W. Lake Street and Holmes Avenue near Lake Calhoun, the Sons of Norway have put their 60,000-square-foot building and parking lot for sale. The property is made up of five separate parcels and could offer potential developers more than 2 acres of prime real estate in the heart of the busy Uptown neighborhood.
“With all of the momentum in the Uptown area, now is the time to market our property and focus on creating an exciting new home for our employees, where we can serve our community, members and stakeholders for decades to come,” said Sons of Norway chief executive Eivind Heiberg, in a statement.
CBRE is marketing the property as well as helping the organization find a new space for its more than 40 employees.
Just a block away from the Calhoun Square shopping center and the busy Lake Street and Hennepin Avenue intersection, CBRE representatives said the site is suited for housing development, but it could offer a variety of uses.
