Kraus-Anderson HQ
501 South 8th Street, Minneapolis

Join NAIOP members for a discussion and tour of the Kraus-Anderson Block in downtown Minneapolis. We’ll tour several elements of the block, including the five-story Kraus-Anderson Headquarters, the eight-story Elliot Park Hotel, and the 17-story HQ Apartments, followed by a happy hour at FINNEGANS.

Erica Arne, Mark McLane, and Kirsten Walstien will discuss what went into the revitalization of the block and Elliot Park neighborhood. Hear the analysis of how the Kraus-Anderson Block replaced a 40-year old, two-story office building and surface parking lot with a creative mixed-use block development. 

This event is open to the first 30 registered NAIOP members.
