The Washington

Minneapolis, MN

Adaptive Reuse, Mixed Use

A Minneapolis North Loop landmark, the former red light district building was in serious need of interior and exterior renovation and a general rebranding. We repaired and cleaned the exterior, restored original historic windows (or replaced when necessary), and opened up previously infilled structural bays to install new storefront windows. The interior has been clarified to create large, flexible tenant spaces for creative office, retail and hospitality uses. Stairs and elevators were creatively edited to minimize cost. The resulting redevelopment project, led by our friends at Falcon Ridge Partners, LLC, rejuvenates the amazing bones of this historic structure while creating a sustainable and optimistic future for a Minneapolis icon.
