BLOOMINGTON, MN—Prime Therapeutics, a pharmacy benefit management firm, has signed a long-term extension for 180,000 square feet at the Normandale LakePark.
Prime, based in St. Paul, Minn., first moved into the office complex in 2008 and now houses about 700 employees on seven floors in the 8400 Tower. Prime employs approximately 1,200 employees in the state.
