Historical research, City of Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Commission (HPC) approvals

Historical research supports the continued vitality of a twentieth century office building.

CHALLENGE

Located on the edge of downtown Minneapolis, the former Northwestern Knitting Company complex was converted into offices in the 1980s. Known today as International Market Square, the building serves as a trade center for interior design and professional businesses and is both listed on the National Register of Historic Places and locally designated as a historic landmark. By 2017, the building envelope and site were in need of maintenance and improvement.

 

SUCCESS

Through historical research, New History uncovered precedent to support the proposed improvements and advised on design decisions to meet City requirements for local historic landmarks. New History helped to secure the necessary City Heritage Preservation Commission (HPC) approvals for the project, supporting the continued vitality of this historic complex.
