MINNEAPOLIS—(January 27, 2015)—Minneapolis-based Oppidan Investment Company, a national property development firm offering a full range of real estate services, today announced plans to construct a five-story mixed used development at the former Bally Total Fitness site located at 4900 Excelsior Boulevard in St. Louis Park. The development will include 180 apartments as well as a 28,000-square foot Fresh Thyme Farmers Market.


“St. Louis Park’s Excelsior and Grand development has proven to be a wonderful asset for the city of St. Louis Park, its residents and the visitors who frequent it. With its close proximity to this established residential and retail hub, we believe the former Bally’s site is ripe for redevelopment,” said Paul Tucci, property developer for Oppidan. “We’re excited to be involved in the growth that St. Louis Park continues to experience.”

Construction of the site will begin in the spring of 2015, and the building should be complete by the summer of 2016. Leasing of the apartments—a combination of studios and one-, two- and three-bedroom units, will begin in early 2016.
