MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A big piece of land that’s sat vacant for the past four years in Eagan will soon be home to an urban-style retail and office space.

The property is located on the former site of Lockheed Martin — which shutdown in 2011 — at the intersection of Yankee Doodle and Pilot Knob roads.

Eagan City Council approved the new development project Friday night, which will be built by Minneapolis based-company CSM.

The 434,000 square-foot space will be known as Central Park Commons.

The design calls for a mix of retail stores, restaurants medical offices and even a grocery store.

The center is expected to open sometime in 2016.
