A historic former Grain Belt property in Northeast Minneapolis is set to be transformed into an event center.
The venue — to be called The 1893 — is expected to open in the fall, according an announcement by Minneapolis-based Entourage Events Group.
“We are thrilled to transform this iconic building in a way that will serve the community in a different way,” stated Steve Hark, the group's CEO.
RSP Architects is leading the transformation of the former brew house offices at 1215 Marshall St. NE into a revitalized space with private dining rooms, meeting and conference rooms and suites for weddings.
The most notable transformation will be the repurposing of the historic and once-popular beer tasting room into a large ballroom.
“This building is a treasure, and we are so grateful to be collaborating with all stakeholders to make these old offices come alive again," Hark said.
