Two parcels of land in Chanhassen that used to belong to Prince have been sold.
Deals closed in December for a 1.82-acre vacant lot at 9411 Kiowa Trail for $240,000 and a lot that was nearly half an acre at 2169 Red Fox Circle for $150,000.
The publicity from the properties formerly being owned by the music superstar could have helped draw attention to the listings, but ultimately Prince’s connection did not play a major role in the sales. “I don’t think that motivated either one of [the buyers],” said Steve Norton of Norton Realty in Mendota Heights.
The properties sold for significantly lower than they were advertised for with to-be-built homes.
Two other Chanhassen properties, a 1.5-acre lot on Lake Riley and another piece of land with a 1960s rambler, also have purchase agreements and are expected to complete deals next month.
The land on Lake Riley, where Prince at one point lived in a purple house, still has a pair of metal driveway gates with a heart and peace sign that the prospective buyers plan to restore, said Dave Hitchcock, an agent with Pro Flat Fee Realty.
Bremer Trust has been processing Prince’s estate since the Minnesota singer died in April.
RJM is relocating to Golden Valley
RJM Construction, which leased space in the Loose-Wiles building in the North Loop since 2013, will move about 70 people to an office building it purchased near the intersection of Hwy. 55 and Hwy. 169.
The company outgrew the 29,000 square feet of space on the sixth and seventh floors of the brick-and-timber building on Washington Avenue. RJM plans to move into the 36,000-square-foot building at 830 Boone Av. N. in the fall after renovations. The company purchased the building at the end of last year for more than $1.8 million. RJM will occupy the entire building after Brink’s Inc., which offers secure transportation of valuables, moves out.
