The former Cloquet DNR Office (1604 S Highway 33, Cloquet, MN 55722) is available for purchase with bidding open Dec. 1-15. Zoning and economic development assistance is available from the City of Cloquet.

The 7.70 acre parcel is located about 18 miles southwest of Duluth and 130 miles north of the Twin Cities with direct access from Highway 33 and additional visibility from I-35:

  • Approximately 3+ acres of the site is developable upland providing an ideal opportunity to small- to mid-sized commercial development.
  • The site features an office building, a partially heated garage building, multiple unheated outbuildings, and city utilities.
  • The parcel is currently zoned farm residential. The City of Cloquet’s Comprehensive Plan guides this parcel of land to Highway Commercial. City staff advise this property as a prime candidate for rezoning, then preparing a Site Plan under the Regional Commercial development standards, for redevelopment into commercial for-profit development.
