The Miller Textile Building, located at 816 E. Hennepin is being redeveloped by Ackerberg. Ackerberg periodically sends updates on the progress. Click here to see the April 2016 update.
For nearly a century, the building was the headquarters of the Miller Bag company, who used the building to produce bags for flour companies, farmers, and other industries that were the foundation of Minnesota’s economy.
For this project, Ackerberg will be completely renovating the building to develop creative class B office and warehouse space with the new infrastructure to serve today and tomorrow’s Minneapolis businesses. Over 60 new windows, landscaping, and all-new plumbing, sprinkler, HVAC, and electrical systems will create bright, welcoming, and efficient spaces for professional and creative businesses wishing to take advantage of the building’s unique environment.
Located along Hennepin Avenue just seconds from I-35W and with proximity to the Northeast commercial centers along Hennepin and Central Avenue as well as the University of Minnesota, the building has superb accessibility and visibility. The property will have 80+ free off-street parking spaces, is served by public transit on Hennepin Avenue and is highly accessible by bicycle. The property will have bicycle parking on site.
This building is ideal for users looking for an affordable and creative open office space that is highly flexible and well located. With a total of 48,500 rentable square feet available, there are many space configurations to suit various office user needs.
The building also has terrific potential for a restaurant and retail user, with multiple floor plans and patio options facing Hennepin Avenue.
