A biotech company that purchased a northeastern Eden Prairie building last year is seeking city approval for a major addition to that building.
Aldevron – a Fargo, North Dakota-based company that develops and manufactures plasmid DNA, RNA, and proteins for research scientists and others in the biotech industry – is asking the Eden Prairie Planning Commission on Monday, Dec. 11, to endorse the construction of a two-story, 96,244-square-foot addition to its existing building at 7075 Flying Cloud Drive, which is east of Highway 212 and south of Shady Oak Road, close to the new Golden Triangle LRT station.
The planning commission reviews development projects and provides recommendations to the Eden Prairie City Council, whose review would come later. The commission’s Monday meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers of the Eden Prairie City Center, 8080 Mitchell Road.
Finance & Commerce, a news organization that covers Twin Cities business, reported that Aldevron purchased the existing 345,503-square-foot building last year for $27 million. Bluestem Brands and Supervalu have been previous occupants of the building.
In addition to constructing a major addition, Aldevron is also seeking permission to remodel the existing building for manufacturing, office, and warehouse use – including with an updated facade.
