Flour Sack Flats will feature views of the Mississippi River and a two story parking ramp covered by a "green roof" which will be an amenity that cab used by Fliur Sack residents.

The Flour Sack Flats name comes from the area’s legendary milling past. The project’s sales and design center is showcased in one of the city’s original Union Railroad storage warehouses. During the milling era, sacks of flour were stored and shipped from the warehouse.

The project will pay tribute to the area’s history through architecture as well. Designed by Jack Boarman and Gerhard Guth of the BKV Group in Minneapolis, the Flour Sack Flats will be a creative and thoughtful interpretation of the flour milling district architecture of the 1900s, an era known for ornate facades, muscular building masses and wide windows. The blend of facades will include historically accurate “ironspot” brick, cast stone and corrugated metal.
