Located along the Twin Cities’ Energy Innovation Corridor in the shadow of Prospect Park North’s historic Witch’s Hat Tower, Maker's @ Minneapolis houses a mixed tapestry of uses aimed at creating a live/work incubation and innovation center. Spaces on the ground level include a makers’ workshop, gallery/retail space, and nonprofit textile center. Each residential floor has a gathering space and shared work area. The buildings are sited to preserve and frame the view of the Witch’s Hat Tower from University Avenue. High-performance façades use glazing with an interior panelized system that allows residents to close out the sun and balconies that retract behind a solar screen and offer opportunities for outdoor living.
