811 Glenwood — Minneapolis, MN
Built in 1924 as a dry goods storage facility, 811 Glenwood is a classic, reinforced concrete building that, thanks to adaptive reuse architecture and interiors, is now a cornerstone of a developing creative corridor along Glenwood Avenue.
In early 2014, PlanForce guided a renovation that reimagined this under-utilized property by adding new windows, an enlarged and welcoming entrance lobby, exposed staircase and polished concrete floors.
A beautiful common area courtyard was added with extensive landscaping. Additional features include 15,000-square-foot floor plates, rooftop solar panels for energy efficiency, high ceilings on all floors, dramatic downtown views and ample on-site parking.
With more than 60,000 square feet of open, light-filled space, this brick and concrete building is prime space for creative tenants, including a branding firm, a casting agency, a craft wine and spirits retail store, a digital retouching studio, an art gallery, and more.
