A Florida developer is set to begin work on an 8,488-square-foot multi-tenant retail building in Blaine, Minn., the project's contractor announced Thursday.

Shingobee Builders, based in Loretto, Minn., revealed in a blog post it has been tapped by WIN Development of Belleair Beach, Fla., to contruct the retail center on the site of former gas station in the northern Twin Cities suburb.

The site is on the southwest corner of Highway 65 and 109th Avenue N.E.

Shingobee said work on demolishing the existing buildings on the site, including the former gas station, will begin April 1. Included among the work will be the excavation of 5,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil.

That is to be followed by the construction of the building shell, two rain gardens and a new entrance from 109th Avenue N.E.

The job is scheduled to be completed by Aug. 8, the company said.

Shingobee has previously worked with WIN Development on multi-tenant retail buildings in St. Cloud, Minn., and Sioux Falls, S.D.
