MSP Starts Demo at New Richfield HQ
Interior demolition started this week at MSP Commercial’s soon-to-be headquarters, just south of Crosstown Hwy 62 at 6436 Penn Ave South in Richfield, MN.
After receiving a Valentine’s Day approval from the City of Richfield, MSP Commercial finalized the purchase of the building shortly after and submitted new architectural plans in mid-March.
Built in the 1950s, the 9,300 square foot building has undergone four expansions to the original structure throughout the years, creating challenges for adaptive reuse. MSP has partnered with Pope Design Group, Loucks Engineering and Innovative Structural Solutions to take on the task. MSP is managing the repositioning project in-house, with assistance from Fixed Assets on construction.
“Year-over-year growth in our portfolio and staff prompted the change.” Said Alex Young, President of MSP Commercial.
“Our goal was to find a centrally located space to support our clients and portfolio that allowed for future growth and could accommodate our vision to create a high-quality, amenity rich office for staff.” – Alex Young, President
Intent on embracing the history and style of the original building, the design features exposed elements like concrete block and open ceilings, while incorporating a mid-century modern aesthetic.
Asymmetrical glazing, dome lighting, geometric features and sleek, linear textures are paired with comfortable but functional furniture pieces to create an inviting atmosphere.
Staff-requested amenities are also incorporated into the layout, including a large turf area for cornhole tournaments and social gatherings, a wellness/fitness room, huddle spaces and a kid-friendly lounge.
