Hopkins warehouse sells for $9.1M

Deal is latest in area for buyer Ugorets.



Special to Finance & Commerce

Hopkins businessman Alex Ugorets has paid $9.135 million for a 330,000-square-foot office warehouse best known for its key tenant, Irwin L. Jacobs.

Ugorets 8098 LLC, an entity related to Ugorets, closed Friday on the acquisition from Continental Decatur LLC, an entity related to Wayzata-based Continental Property Group, according to a certificate of real estate value made public Tuesday. The property, located at 8098 Excelsior Blvd., includes the building and 16,56 acres of industrial land. The price, which works out to $27.68 per square foot, is a significant jump from the $5 million Continental paid for the site in 2008.

“I think the whole area is changing,” Ugorets said, citing the proposed light rail line service through the area and the city’s potential for redevelopment. “I just like Hopkins,” he said, “It’s coming alive as we speak.”

Ugorets, who is the president of Midland Glass Co., also runs Ugorets Properties, Ugorets Properties paid $4.2 million in 2008 for the adjacent building at 7900 Excelsior Blvd. Midland Glass paid $2.8 million in 2009 for the building at 410 11th Ave. S., where it moved from smaller quarters in another building Ugorets owned.

Ugorets and Ugorets Properties own several other commercial and industrial properties in and around St. Louis Park. Jacobs Management Corp. leases office space in the building and will continue to do so, said David Mahler , vice president of Jacobs Management. The building also houses two small tenants and the consumer goods remarketing arm of Jacobs Trading Co. That operation was acquired in 2011 by Washington D.C.- based Liquidity Services Inc.
