THE DAYTON'S PROJECT
Reactivating THE downtown landmark
"The value of New History on the delivery of our project cannot be overstated. Over time, I found myself leaning in increasing measure on New History as a trusted member of our core team. They consistently brought clarity, advocacy, and clear navigation to the historic tax credit certification process."
The Dayton's Project
1.2 million sq. ft.
As the largest historic tax credit project in Minnesota, The Dayton's Project is the historic redevelopment of a Minneapolis landmark.
With 1.2 million square feet and 14 eras of construction, the historic Dayton's Department Store is an extremely challenging repositioning project in the heart of downtown Minneapolis ... that happened on the precipice of a global pandemic.
New History was a key team member of this fast-paced multi-phased large-scale historic renovation project. New History successfully overturned a previous denial for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), and then provided navigation of a multi-phased historic tax credit project - including guidance on critical design issues, on-site demolition and construction review, and communication with preservation stakeholders. The Dayton's Project extends well beyond Minneapolis, and touches the memories and futures of many Minnesotans.
