Company Description:

Grand Marais is a special place to work and play. The vibrant community, affordable real estate, solid work ethic, low crime rates, low property taxes, minimal traffic congestion, quality schools and a smorgasbord of area activities all combine to make the area your choice for a new or expanded business. Living near the scenic Lake Superior, Superior National Forest and Boundary Waters Canoe Area only provides an additional incentive to live and work here.

Be one of the first to choose an affordable commercially zoned lot in the newly completed Cedar Grove Business Park in Grand Marais, Minnesota. The 80 acre park has a full complement of utilities and hosts 33 lots ranging in size from 1-4 acres. The State of Minnesota has designated the area as a tax-free Job Opportunity Building Zone (JOBZ) for qualifying businesses. The Park is conveniently located on the new Gunflint Trail, within the city limits of Grand Marais with close access to supporting businesses.
