City of Blaine buys redevelopment site

The Blaine Economic Development Authority has closed on the purchase of one of the properties needed for its 105th Avenue redevelopment plan.

The city paid $1,744,200 for the property at 10550 Radisson Road, which includes a 7,200-square-foot building and 1.27 acres of land. The sellers are Busch Investments LLC and Dusty’s Truck Repair, which are mutually owned and located on the property.

A staff report indicates the city first approached the owners a year ago to discuss replacing the repair shop with new development. The owners agreed, with a provision the business could remain as a tenant through a portion of the summer. The city agreed, noting it will be 2025 before a developer will purchase property from the Economic Development Authority and begin construction.
