Texa Tonka

Rediscovering life in a historic structure

Restoring one of the first grocery centers in the Twin Cities

It was innovative as a neighborhood shopping center in its time, and operated successfully for decades. Ultimately it suffered the fate of many neighborhood centers due to increased competition.

50,000 SF RETAIL
BUILT IN 1951
RENOVATED IN 2019-2020

Bringing back a hidden gem

As we learned more about the building, we discovered amazing mid-century modern architectural elements that had been hidden for decades.

Our team of creative architects and engineers helped design a renovated retail center that harkens back to the 1950’s with a modern twist. This redevelopment will return Texa Tonka to a community gathering spot where residents can gather for events, connect with neighbors and fulfill their daily needs and desires.

An outdoor public patio area for community events and restaurant/coffee patrons was created by removing the middle 4,000 square feet of the existing shopping center.

Green space, natural vegetation and hardscape elements will be introduced throughout Texa Tonka, creating a more comfortable environment that welcomes pedestrians, bikes and families.
