For the latest example, look to RJM Construction, a St. Louis Park, Minn.-based general contractor.

The company in early October announced that it will begin construction of a 32,000-square-foot medical office buiding in Coon Rapids, Minn., for Suburban Eye Specialists.

Company officials have planned a ground-breaking event for Oct. 16. The building is scheduled to be complete in June of 2013.

North Suburban Eye Specialists will occupy 22,000 square feet of the building, while the investment partnership of North Suburban Eye Specialists and United Properties will lease out the remaining space.

North Suburban will move from its 13,000-square-foot location across the street once RJM finishes the new building.

The building is an important one for the city of Coon Rapids. The city has targeted four areas of Coon Rapids for economic revitalization and development. The future site of the eye clinic rests in the middle of one of these areas.

The new building will feature a barreled vault entryway and architectural materials such as metal panels, cultured stone and stucco. The exterior of the building will be made of pre-cast limestone to complement other nearby medical buildings.
