The 927 Building is taking shape at the corner of Dupont and West Broadway in north Minneapolis. This $7 million project will be a premier space to work, meet and celebrate. More importantly, through a planned transition of ownership from The Jay and Rose Phillips Family Foundation to Tri Construction, 927 will become a black-owned commercial building on north Minneapolis’ busiest commercial corridor.
As you can see from the photo above, 927 combines a historically significant 130-year-old building with a new addition, resulting in over 19,000 square feet of retail and office space.
Tri-Construction is managing all aspects of construction. Thanks to Tri’s 20+ years of experience, the 927 building is being built by a diverse crew of talented tradespeople.
While the 927 project does not have historic designation, great care is going into the renovation of the three-story red brick building facing West Broadway. It is our goal to restore this long-neglected landmark to its former glory.
Another key feature of this project will be its use of locally created art. This photo, taken from the alley behind the 927 building, shows scaffolding covering up part of the new construction that will be covered by a mural designed by Juxtaposition Arts. This alley area will also feature ornamental fencing, bike racks and other sculptures designed by JXTA artists.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 927 building in a few months.
