Delta puts Northwest headquarters in Eagan on the market


Delta Air Lines is looking to unload the former Eagan headquarters of Northwest Airlines.

Delta has listed the former Northwest building with a South metro commercial real estate firm. The airline is also marketing another adjacent Northwest site near Interstate 494.

Delta spokesman Kent Landers said the airline is committed to maintaining 10,000 jobs in Minnesota and 400 daily departures from its Minneapolis-St. Paul hub until at least 2016.

"We agreed to establish various corporate functions at the Northwest facility at 34th Avenue and that is a chance for us to completely renovate that facility and create a new office environment for all of the corporate employees who will call Minneapolis home," Landers said.

Northwest has been the sole occupant of the 266,000-square-foot space in Eagan since it built the four-story office building in 1985.
