East Side Storage and Maintenance Facility

Whole Submittal Guidlines

Partners: CPED, Public Works

Budget: $150,000

Status: This project is in the design phase.

This proposed multi-purpose municipal operations campus will facilitate a variety of large scale storage and maintenance needs. The main building will be comprised shop space, service bays, storage areas and staff offices.
A selection panel chose Minneapolis Artist Randy Walker to create public artwork for the site. Walker is best known locally for his work titled Return Journey, more commonly known as the Bracket Rocket, and has work all over the country from San Francisco to Greensboro, North Carolina.
With guidance from a Steering Committee of local individuals, Walker engaged with community members and future tenants of the site to learn more about the surrounding neighborhoods - past, present and future. Sites included:

The goals of the public art project are:

Collection Point is an artwork inspired by the many collections found within Northeast Minneapolis, both seen and unseen. Collections are everywhere in Northeast Minneapolis. Ethnicities, artwork, architecture, and businesses are some of the more visible collections that define the unique character of northeast neighborhoods. The new East Side Storage & Maintenance Facility will be a center for collections less visible, but essential to all of Minneapolis. It is an artwork that celebrates the vital role the new facility and its employees will play in Minneapolis, and is envisioned as a community gathering place. Learn more about the artwork
