It'll be more than a year before it opens, but this is what visitors to the refurbished Dayton's building can expect to find come summer 2019.

Updated renderings for "The Dayton's Project" have been released this week by lead architects Gensler, giving interested Minnesotans a taste of what is happening at the historic building.

The building was sold to New York-based 601W Properties after previous tenants Macy's closed its store last spring.

It's now being refurbished into a mixed-use development that will include office and retail space, a food hall in the basement and a rooftop patio.

The Star Tribune notes that since starting work, the developers have found historic remnants of the original building, including terrazzo floors on the ground level and a marble drinking fountain on the fourth floor.

Few details about possible tenants have been released at this stage, but celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern has been collaborating on the new food hall and market in the basement level.

Check out the renderings of the project, which are a mixture of new and previously released images.
