Last of Working Bloomington Farms might Sell
The last working farm in Bloomington may forced to sell in order to make room for development. The 58 acres of the Kelley Farm, which is in view of the Mall of America, might be purchased by United Properties.
One of the reasons the farm has lasted so long is that it is near the airport runway, which means that housing cannot be built on the site. Bill Katter, a United Properties senior vice president for development, said that there are already clients interested in putting offices up on the land.
"It's a unique property for its views and proximity to the Mall of America and airport," he said. "All those things play into our interest to make a deal there."
