NAIOP-MN University Challenge

The 15th annual NAIOP - MN University Challenge is April 19 when attendees can see the next round of exceptional talent about to enter our market. Join your colleagues for this afternoon event and reception at the new Treasure Island Center.

Three finalists from the six competing universities will present their concept for Ramsey County's Riverfront Property Site in downtown St. Paul. This active site is the subject of much speculation in the market, so come and see what these student teams propose for the best use.

After the 2018 champion is crowned, enjoy a reception in this new event space. Hempel and the Saint Paul Port Authority will also be providing tours of Treasure Island Center, including the TRIA Ice Rink on level 5.

Be there to support the talented professionals entering the market. It’s going to be a great competition!
