Sports Authority signs lease for store at Minneapolis City Center


Minneapolis -- Shorenstein Properties LLC announced Sports Authority signed a lease for 21,877 sq. ft. at Minneapolis City Center.

Sports Authority has ten stores in the Minneapolis area but this marks the company’s first store in downtown Minneapolis. The store is expected to open in fall 2015.

“We’re excited to bring our passion for sports and our unparalleled selection of sporting goods and apparel to the Minneapolis City Center, and we look forward to being part of the vibrant retail and lifestyle atmosphere in downtown,” said Michael Foss, CEO of Sports Authority.

Sports Authority will occupy the ground-floor retail space on the Nicollet Mall and 7th Street side of the property. Sports Authority’s presence brings total retail occupancy at Minneapolis City Center to 86%.

Additionally, last week, Shorenstein signed a lease for more than 40,000 sq. ft. with discount luxury apparel retailer Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th for a store that is slated to open in April 2016.
