The Cubes at French Lake is CRG’s first super-bulk inventory distribution facility in Minnesota and the state’s largest speculative industrial project ever developed. The 1,006,880-square-foot development is located on 65 acres near the intersection of County Road 81 and Dayton Parkway at 11500 Lawndale Lane in Dayton, Minn. The site is approximately 35 miles from the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport and 20 miles from downtown Minneapolis’ strong labor pool. It offers immediate access to U.S. Interstate 94 via the new Dayton Parkway interchange, completed in fall 2021.

The one-million-square-foot cross-dock warehouse offers the same industry-leading features that have become the hallmark of CRG’s The Cubes brand, developed for next-generation industrial users. Specifications include 40’ clear heights, ESFR sprinkler systems, high-efficiency LED lighting, 652 parking spaces, a 185’-depth concrete truck court, 231 trailer parking spaces, 100 9’x10’ grade-level dock doors with 69 reserved for future expansion, four 14’x16’ drive-in dock doors and 60’ speed bays.

CRG’s integrated partner, Lamar Johnson Collaborative, designed the Cubes at French Lake, while its parent company, Clayco, served as the general contractor.
