According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Eagan City Council voted 5-0 to go ahead with plans for a new Minnesota Vikings headquarters after discussing questions about signage and parking issues.

The site is the old Northwest Airlines site. The team could break ground as early as next month. They expect they could move in by 2018. This headquarters project is expected to be just the start of a 15-year mixed-use project.

Winter Park, the Vikings' current corporate home, is named for Max Winter, who lead a group of investors to getting the expansion team in 1961. A 10,000-seat stadium is in the plan. It could be used for high school games as well as training camp activities.

US Bank Stadium is good to go. Now the football team needs more practice space, training areas and better technology, including a comfortable theater for players to watch game film. The new facility will have five outdoor fields and one indoors.

Off the field, the team’s corporate employees are scattered across three sites. The new home would pull them together in a single site.
