Our collaboration with The Social Lights has come to a close with their new opening in Northeast Minneapolis. We helped The Social Lights with transforming a 1922 loading dock area in the original RyKrisp Factory building into a fully functioning contemporary office space. We're proud to be part of this successful project and wish The Social Lights luck as they move forward in their new space!
