The building consists of roof framing that is metal roof deck on steel joists and is supported by steel beams and columns. The building is inspired by the Victory Memorial Parkway with wood-finish ceilings and Douglas fir structural columns.
Clark teamed up with LSE Architects to create a welcoming and fun atmosphere.
North Market – Minneapolis, MN
This new nonprofit full-service grocery store is located in the North Minneapolis neighborhoods, a much-needed location for a full-service store. The project consisted of a 5,300 square foot addition to the existing 15,000 square feet. The existing bearing wall between the existing building and the addition was removed and replaced with a new steel beam and column line. The roof framing is a metal deck on steel bar joists. The exterior wall is a CMU bearing wall.
This store features not only a grocery store, but a wellness center, cooking classes, and health services.
