Transformation of the Mill District

IMG_1309.JPGPast: The shell of a once mighty mill is an important symbol in the change and re-imagination of industrial Minneapolis.

 

IMG_1308.JPGThe Present: Today the Mill District and Downtown East are the sites of a now changing industrial landscape. Here, the old textile factory: North Star Blankets, has become the site of chic apartments.

IMG_1306.JPGFuture: This construction was a short walk away from the heart of the Milling District. However, it seems to carry the same spirit as the apartments and condos located within the old factories. With same yellowed brick, Minneapolis is embracing its past.
