Two Rivers Place

Two Rivers Place

Mankato, MN

Originally an auto dealership, a complete renovation created space for a new retail center and offices for a commercial metal fabrication company. The showroom space was converted to retail space. The look of traditional small town storefronts inspired the style of design and selection of materials. Tall towers at both ends of the building were built up to increase visibility from the busy Riverfront Drive. Brick columns give the building a classic look while providing a durable maintenance-free material at its base, and backlit awnings add a splash of color to the storefronts, day and night. The traditional look is carried out in the lighting fixtures, upper windows, cornices, and stone accents. This renovation into a retail center has helped to transform a formerly uninspiring building into a quaint shopping destination.
