Recognizing the growing need for flexible industrial and high clear height warehouse in the northwestern Twin Cities, Meritex pursued and acquired a site with over 474,600 square feet of infill industrial space north of Minneapolis.

Named Parkers Lake Commerce Center, the site includes three interconnected buildings which was the home of Nilfisk’s North American headquarters until 2015.

The redevelopment of building one, a 168,100 square foot, 32’ clear height property, included adding modern amenities, featuring new storefront entrances and façade, new ballasted EPDM roof system, LED lighting with motion sensors, clerestory windows, ESFR sprinkler system, new concrete truck court with 24 additional dock-high doors, two drive-in doors, additional parking, new landscaping, and trailer parking.
