Huge Fed-Ex building going up fast in Maple Grove

In what seems like overnight, the Ryan Construction company got a fast track on putting up the walls of the massive 276,000-square-foot Federal Express Distribution Facility in Maple Grove.

The building is located on the south side of 85th Avenue/Weaver Lake Road and east side of Revere Lane.MGfedExBuilding

“It’s a massive building and it’s amazing how fast the walls went up,” Maple Grove Community Development Director Dick Edwards said. “They do quick work.”

Edwards said the building would operate on the same scale as the nearby UPS Distribution Facility, making Maple Grove a major distribution hub. The building is targeted for occupancy next spring.

“Generally speaking the building may be able to open in spring/early summer, but it’s all driven by the weather,” Edwards said.
