You’ve all heard of food co-ops, but what about buying into a whole neighborhood? That’s exactly what the NorthEast Investment Cooperative (NEIC) in Minneapolis is doing. By donating a portion of its services, McMonigal Architects partners with NEIC on proposed renovations to commercial properties. We work with NEIC and potential tenants to develop economical solutions that aim to sustainably reuse and bring new life to tired and vacated old buildings. Extensive field measuring and investigation, detailed code analysis, and creative design solutions for the building facades are part of the process.
