In August 2014, Hillcrest purchased this 270,000-square-foot former food products manufacturing building situated on 25 acres. The property was previously owned and operated since the 1950s by Sandoz, Novartis, and most recently Nestle until 2013. Hillcrest re-branded the property Westside Center, appropriately named for its centralized and strategic location just south of the intersection of Highway 100 and Interstate 394 in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. Hillcrest re-developed this once vacant and defunct building for several growing companies. The renovation of Westside Center included substantial interior demolition, environmental remediation, and installation of new HVAC, electrical, and lighting systems. Westside Center quickly attracted and secured many commercial tenants seeking modern facilities close to downtown Minneapolis. Westside Center serves businesses looking for creative class offices, industrial service production, corporate headquarters, and other commercial uses. In less than one year from the date of purchase, Westside Center has transformed from 100% vacant to approximately 90% leased. Hillcrest is proud of the community impact this project has had, and will continue to have in the future with additional new construction possibilities on currently undeveloped land. Once shuttered and vacant for several years, Westside Center is now home for over 100 living-wage jobs.
