Did Did you guess where we were yesterday? It was the Young-Quinlan Building!

Built in 1926, the five-story building’s Renaissance Revival style is derived from a façade of tan brick and Kasota limestone that reflects Quinlan’s love for Italian art. The building’s exterior and interior were developed to reflect Quinlan’s definition of what a good store should be: “Always seek the best, whether its merchandise or appointments for the home, or advice on business, because the best is least expensive in the end.”

Today Elizabeth Quinlan is considered one of the most successful women in business of her time and the Young-Quinlan Building stands as a tribute to her impact on Minneapolis’s economic development. #WhereAreWeWednesday

* Neighbors for East Bank Livability​ UPDATE*: The group has had a significant victory recently -- a judge has granted a stay of demolition on the St Anthony Commercial Club building pending the appeal of the Minnesota Environmental Rights Act claims.

The judge is asking for $100,000 bond to move forward with the stay. If the bond is not met the building will be razed, which will be a serious setback in the group's fight against the proposed 40-story Alatus condominium tower.

The group has raised over $50,000 so far. Please consider donating to this worthy cause by contacting them through their Facebook page.
