Kindeva Drug Delivery, formerly 3M Drug Delivery Systems, is constructing their global headquarters in Woodbury’s northeast business park area. Kindeva is a leading global contract development and manufacturing organization that specializes in solving complex drug delivery challenges for its pharmaceutical and biotechnology customers.
The 137,500-square-foot facility is being built at the northeast corner of Settlers Ridge Parkway and Hudson Road and will provide corporate office and administrative spaces, laboratory and testing areas, clean manufacturing and production space, and warehouse/building support areas. While Kindeva has just short of 1,000 employees worldwide, their Woodbury headquarters space is expected to open with about 150 employees and room to grow.
This project is consistent with the City’s development vision for the northeast area that is outlined in the 2040 Comprehensive Plan, the City’s blueprint for future development. It also aligns with the 2018 Economic Development Strategic Plan, which prioritizes job growth in the community. Located adjacent to I-94, land uses in the northeast area will likely include businesses that benefit from proximity and access to a major freeway distribution corridor, representing a new development pattern for the City, with a focus on light industrial, manufacturing and distribution uses.
Kindeva plans to be open for business in mid-2021. While full development of the northeast area is expected to take many years due to the sheer size of the area, the Kindeva project is an important first step toward implementing the economic development vision for this area.
