Built in 1890, its tenants have included a Piggly Wiggly grocery store, a YMCA, a Chinese restaurant (the Moy Cafe), a candy store, a cigar store, dentists and doctors’ offices and building contractors’ offices.[1][1]

Located at the corner of West Broadway and Emerson Avenue North, this two-story commercial building had sat vacant for many years and was under ownership by the City of Minneapolis. The Ackerberg Group undertook the rehabilitation, which restored the exterior and interior as well as a rear building addition. The restoration of the building returns this vital corner back to the community through the City-County Federal Credit Union, the Bean Scene (a ground floor coffee shop), and Emerge Community Development offices on the second floor. The preservation of this building is an example of the hard work of the private and public sectors working to improve West Broadway and North Minneapolis.[1]
