A Minneapolis North Loop landmark, the former red light district building was in serious need of interior and exterior renovation and a general rebranding. The exterior is being repaired and cleaned, with new windows and storefront being installed in previously in-filled historic openings. Interior space has been clarified to create large, flexible tenant spaces for creative office, retail and hospitality uses. The resulting work rejuvenates the amazing bones of this historic structure, marking the gateway to the booming North Loop district, while creating a sustainable and profitable future for an iconic Minneapolis building.
