Spring Thawing - Snow/Ice Build-Up on Roofs

A record-breaking snowfall for Minnesota in the month of February is no small deal! At this time of year, and the weather we have been having, is cause to pay attention to impacts to buildings and roofs. With more wet snow on the way, over the next few weeks, we urge you to take action now. Here are a few of the main maintenance tips we would like to share with you.

1031 Tax Deferred Exchanges Explained

Our company would like to share some information regarding a 1031 exchange, also known as like-kind exchanges. This is very relevant to an industrial business owner and may be seen as very beneficial to look into further. 1031 exchanges have been a vital aspect of the tax code since 1921. It allows investors or business property owners to sell a property, buy a new property, and defer paying capital gains tax on the sale, as long as both properties are of like kind. In the future, the taxes will have to be paid because it is a deferral, not an exclusion. There are many rules for how the exchange must be carried out, so we provided some options that may be useful for business owners of industrial buildings.

Last Mile Logistics: Case Study, Rosemount, MN

Last mile logistics is a hot topic in today’s retail environment. We have seen the decline in the standard retail storefront over the past few years, with many of these storefronts have been replaced by Amazon Prime trucks zipping across the freeways, fulfilling orders placed online for items which used to be purchased at the neighborhood store. So, what do these changes in consumer habits, and therefore changes in supply chain logistics, mean for builders, commercial real estate practitioners, investors, and owner/operators? We offer a definition, considerations, a case study and additional resources to consult for logistics site considerations.
