BKV Group is excited to announce that A-Mill Artist Lofts is the recipient of a 2016 Minnesota Preservation Award (MPA). The MPAs recognize outstanding projects, groups and individuals that contribute to Minnesota’s preservation accomplishments.
Once the largest flour milling operation in the world, the Pillsbury “A-Mill” Complex was shut down in 2003. The building sat vacant and deteriorated over the next several years. In 2011, it was placed on the National Trust for Historic Preservation list of 11 Most Endangered Places. Dominium acquired the mill and revitalized it into 251 affordable artist apartments known as the A-Mill Artist Lofts, bringing new life to the St. Anthony Falls Historic District.
A-Mill will be presented with the Impact Award at the 2016 Preservation Alliance Benefit Gala on October 6th, 2016 at the beautiful Woman’s Club of Minneapolis. The project was selected among eight exceptional nominations for recognition due to its significant contribution to Minnesota’s preservation accomplishments and connection to the mission of the PAM.
