Baldwin Retail, an eight-unit mall at the southwest corner of the I-94/USH 63 interchange is ready for lease.

At an open house last Thursday Tammy Medina of Kami, Inc. of Woodbury, the developer of the mall, said one bay has already been rented and the other seven are available.

Medina, who with her husband Gonzalo owns Kami, Inc. and have developments throughout the Twin City area, said "we think Baldwin is a great location with lots of traffic."

Tammy Medina also said she and her husband like their development to look good and they take care of their properties and maintain them. "We consider our tenants our partners."

The south bay of the mall has been rented to Ben Grosz of Baldwin who currently owns The Daily Grind in Hudson. He is opening a coffee shop/bakery that will be called Maggie's Joe and Dough. The wholesale bakery will be called Bakery Creations and will sell to other restaurants and coffee shops. It will have a drive-up window, Grosz said. He said he hopes to be up and running by mid-November.

The eight bays at Baldwin Retail each have approximately 1,400 square feet of floor space.

In addition to the eight unit mall at the development, the Medinas are considering a gas station/convenience store, a hotel, restaurant and perhaps a small medical building on the remaining lots.
