Peter Coyle Interviews Minnesota United FC Owner Bill McGuire For Bisnow



Peter Coyle interviewed Minnesota United FC owner Bill McGuire about the Allianz Field construction project in St. Paul and plans for the surrounding Midway area at Bisnow’s “Mixed-Use & Entertainment CRE Development” event.

The conversation touched on a variety of topics related to the project, including the mixed-use nature of the properties around the stadium, building heights and why McGuire decided to get involved in the stadium project. “It was an emotional decision,” McGuire said. “We all stand around and say we want to be a great international community, but we don’t want to have the sport of the world? It seemed like a logical and easy decision to step in and say let’s keep this here.”

The interview was part of a larger seminar on various commercial real estate developments around the Twin Cities. The event, which was held Sept. 12 at 100 Washington Square in Minneapolis, was hosted by Bisnow, a commercial real estate news website and event company.
