“Argonne Village has all of the attributes we look for in a Class-A grocery-anchored center,” said Scott Carr, executive vice president and chief investment officer for Inland Real Estate Corporation. “The 100-percent-leased center has a strategic location in a demographically-strong trade area and a high quality tenant roster which includes Cub Foods, the market leading grocer in the Minneapolis-St. Paul market, and other high quality national and local tenants. In addition, the acquisition of Argonne Village strengthens our presence in the Twin Cities metro area, which enhances our leasing flexibility and operating efficiencies.”

The Argonne Village neighborhood shopping center, situated approximately 20 miles south of Minneapolis, draws from an affluent population base of more than 40,500 with average household income in excess of $124,000 within a 3-mile radius. The property is well located off of County Road 50 and I-35W, where an estimated 20,237 and 83,000 vehicles pass by, respectively, each day. The city of Lakeville, located within the Minneapolis-St. Paul-St. Cloud MN-WI MSA, is a growing, family-oriented community that was named one of Money Magazine’s “Top 100 Best Places to Live” in 2012.
