Washburn Lofts was originally constructed in 1914 as a part of the Washburn-Crosby grain processing operation along the Mississippi River in downtown Minneapolis.

Ceiling heights of 12 feet are standard throughout. The individual dwellings celebrate their industrial character with exposed concrete structural systems and masonry walls. Rather than covering up existing surfaces, new and old are juxtaposed and create dynamic interplay.

Units on the north side of the building have balconies or verandas that provide a view of the river and lofts on the south side have views of the city skyline. The west facade exposes the concrete structural framework with brick infill and has verandas cut back into the volume of the building.
