First Avenue

Past Development

244 - 252 N 1st Ave Minneapolis

The classic, brick buildings at 244-254 First Avenue are an important part of downtown Minneapolis’ rich history. For over 100 years they have housed companies and factories that served the ever-changing downtown community and shaped the development of an urban center. The last century has seen a diverse and colorful group of tenants including: furriers, coffee roasters, confectioners, artificial limb manufacturers, sign makers and dry goods companies. Since the 1980s the buildings have been home to Yamamoto Moss, an advertising and design agency. The unique and historic spaces are ideal for companies who value architectural detail and want to be part of the vibrant energy of Hennepin Avenue.
