The Minneapolis Grain Exchange Buildings (there are actually two separate buildings) are worthwhile for a visit due both to their painstakingly preserved art deco design and their historic role in the evolution of agricultural product markets and companies in the Upper Midwest. The trading floor is a gem that has been repurposed for use by start up companies and as... More

Love the CoCo space. I once worked in the building and was quite sad when the trading floor closed. So glad they repurposed it.

Next time you're downtown Minneapolis pop in to the Minneapolis Grain Exchange. Admire the terra-cotta exterior then head to the 4th floor observation gallery to view the historic trading floor. The huge windows were designed to let in enough natural light to allow the "Cash Market" traders to easily rate the qualityt of sample pans of wheat, oats, and barley.... More

I like to tour old buildings, looking at the materials that were used and how they have faired over the years. The grain exchange is an office building with public access limited to lobby, stairwell, elevator and hallways. There is a cafeteria. It's worth a quick walkthru, but no more then a few minutes.

Edwardo's Pizza was in this building many years ago. They had the best stuff pizza offered under the sun. The were on the main floor. My mother in Maple Grove would even request a pizza from there if I was in the city. Too bad it's gone now..

Hated to see the floor shut down. There is something exciting about the business done on the floor of any exchange. so another good-bye to an era. Happy and hoping to see re-purpose take place with attention to preserving the gorgeous details past craftsman created to last forever....

The best way to see Minneapolis’s building architectural style like the Grain Exchange is to just put on a comfy pair of shoes, take a bottle of water, arm yourself with a good descriptive map, remember to look up and get walking! That’s exactly the way we did most parts of the downtown core and we were lucky to have... More

I was there yesterday and not so sure what the other poster was talking about. I was up on the 4th floor where the trading floor was and saw the big board that is in the photo. The building is worth a look around, but then there are a lot of buildings like that in downtown Minneapolis. "When you walk... More
