  • About the Mill District

    Not too long ago, this neighborhood in Minneapolis was home to endless mills and warehouses, nicknamed the Milling Capital of the World. In the 70s and 80s the area fell to urban decay. Since the early 2000s a renaissance has taken place giving way to a steady stream of development.


    We created this website to give you a taste of the lifestyle, if you would like to learn more about Buying or Selling in this exciting area reach out to us anytime!
