Another major commercial development may be destined for Eagan. The current location of the Lockheed Martin campus has been sold to a developer, CSM Equities, and the tentative plans are for a 47 acre development to include largely retail space. The company is in the process of requesting the necessary zoning changes from research and development to accommodate their retail development vision. A portion of the project would be office space and several free-standing restaurants. The Lockheed Martin facility is scheduled to remain operating until its scheduled closing in 2013.
The Pilot Knob - Yankee Doodle Road area has become the major center of Eagan commerce, and the proposed new project will be a great addition to this already prominent location.
