Hallberg Building

The Chisago County HRA- EDA & the City of Wyoming sold a 14-acre parcel of land along Hwy 35 to Hallberg, Inc. back in July of 2021. Hallberg Inc. purchased this parcel and is constructing two buildings. The first will be a 20,000 sq. ft. building that will be home to two industrial businesses looking for space. As you can see by the photos, they are working toward completion estimated within the next few months. The second building is estimated to be 40,000 to 50,000 sq. ft. and will be constructed after the first building has been completed. Once these buildings have been constructed they will be available for lease to industrial businesses.
