The Wilf family, owners of the Vikings, has bought a building from the Pohlads, owners of the Twins. The building is located at 7905 Golden Triangle Drive and is next to Winter Park, the Vikings’ training facility in Eden Prairie. The Vikings paid $10 million for the building, which could be torn down and used for a new or expanded training site.

Lester Bagley: “You don’t have to be a real estate expert to read between the hash marks and see that the team is setting up for a possible future expansion of Winter Park.”

The Vikings have been based in Winter Park since 1981. The Wilfs have invested several million dollars into the facility since they bought the team in 2005, but it still lacks some amenities found at other NFL team headquarters and training facilities.

Looks like google needs to update their maps. There's a roundabout at one of those intersections now.

Plus there are different cars there now, not accurate at all.

This move seems to fit with all the other changes we've been making.

I like the way this team thinks. They aren't being complacent with being average.

Hopefully this team continues to take the next step and we can continue to grow (and Finally win a Superbowl!)

good call. they're building it in the picture.

right next to the Viking ship the Wilfs immediately upon buying the team put a few bucks in to to fix up.

Winter is still here.....we are in a long winter this year.....The Starks were right this year.

It is interesting the Vikes are expanding there, so there is no room for that downtown? I guess that makes sense, they are squeezing in the stadium as it is.

I hear you guys are getting another half-foot. Craziness. Reminds me of that one time (I think I was either in junior high or high school in Bloomington) that we actually had a dusting of snow in June. Laughing

As far as Winter Park, that was kind of the reason I was hoping they would build on the Ammunition site. Since they'd have so much room, they could have moved Winter Park there.

I read last summer that they wanted a 3rd field. One for each unit.

where i am, we got 13" of heavy wet snow last Sunday.

it's really messing with the farmers' schedules who want to start planting crops, causing a huge delay.

We got 14" about a week ago. Today's storm supposed to bring another 6-9".

Seems to be helping the drought in the region though, especially in SD.
