Developed in 2006, the Abitare Building is the sister building to Hi Fi Sound and a former cold storage building for a fruit vender at the Minneapolis Farmers market. Built adjacent to the ruins of an old asphalt shingle manufacturing building that burned down in the 1970's. Great care was taken to maintain the integrity of the site and to not compromise the adjacent structure. The building required a complete rebuilding, maintaining only the basic shell. The building blends in seamlessly with the adjacent property and was a catalyst to the revitalization of Minneapolis' Market District.
