Brad, an architect on our team, graduated from Hutchinson High School. He was welcomed back to the school to speak in his former teacher's construction class, where he shared the site plans for this Caribou Coffee location, as well as the process of designing, permitting and everything else needed for a building permit. He also led students through the construction site so they could see the plans in action.
A new Dunn Brothers location opened in New Richmond, Wisconsin, in March 2018. Wilkus Architects partnered with Dunham Associates, Inc., G4 Construction Management and Dunn Brothers Coffee Construction on this project.
The brothers behind Dunn Brothers, Ed and Dan, moved to the Twin Cities in the late 1980s. Their mission was to:
- Roast in small batches.
- Serve the freshest brew possible.
- Provide a warming coffee experience.
- Put community at the core of the business.
We were happy to help them open up a new Midwest location and continue to fulfill their mission in an environment that supports their approach to business.
In May 2018, St. Paul welcomed a new Tim Horton's location in what used to be the Macy's Department Store building downtown.
Tim Horton’s occupies a 2,200 square foot space on the ground floor, next door to Walgreens. New construction is also occurring upstairs, which will soon be Treasure Island Center and the Minnesota Wild's 1,200-seat practice rink (read more here).
As you enter from Wabasha St. N, a large, red Tim Horton’s logo is front and center, luring passersby and adding to the dynamic entrance. The store has a minimal look with contemporary light fixtures, lots of white accents and hints of red throughout the space. The location offers plenty of seating, with window-side high tops providing a view of the lively downtown St. Paul streets.
Thanks to Aedifica Case Engineering for the partnership on this project!
