My husband and I are looking for a live/work space to buy. We would need the work space to be a minimum or 750sf with 10 foot ceilings. We will also need a yard for our pets. It would be nice if the living space was at least 750sf as well. We have seen an example of what we are looking for in the form of a converted corner store; however, it only had about 350sf living space. If anyone has ideas of a way the entire project (building and any remodeling that would need to be done) could be accomplished for 300k or less in Minneapolis or St. Paul please feel free to email me ideas, buildings available, etc. to

The madison lofts in Northeast have some live work space available. There are about 4 units for sale that include one or two bed rooms and then space in the back for artists or others to work. One of the units has been sold to a massage therapist who wanted to combine live work space. look into this.

also the CW lofts, which is the old cream of wheat building also in Northeast, has live/work space on the whole first floor. these are also condos for sale. I think the price was about $180,000, but do not quote me.

neither of these places had any plans for selecting who the "artists" were who were buying these units. So there is no promise they will be sold to working artists.

But I think the developers are responsding to the demand, especially in northeast for more live/work space.

Im a local photographer and musician. Me and my buddy looking for a space to work and live out of. I need to find something where i can set up my photo studio and also where noise wont be much of an issue, being as how its needed for rehearsal as well. A space with a community bathroom and shower would be fine. I dont need a kitchen either.. just a space to work and sleep. Were kinda looking for something with 6-900 or so sq feet. and pretty high ceilings. were hoping to find something for $4-750/mo. If anyone knows of anything around the minneapolis area or the west/north side please let me know.

I appreciate it.

East side of river or in downtown MSP
500 to 1800 square feet
Largely unfinished
Landlord open to tenant modification and upgrading.
Full bath required, can compromise on kitchen

Don't have a lot of cash, hoping for reduced rent in exchange for sweat equity or services. Wiling to listen to all proposals. I like funky and unusual.

do you know if there are any more units available or if there will be in the near future. I saw your post quite some time ago and was browsing through the forum again and ran across it. The space is really beautiful. Can you help me out with a little more information.
Thanks so much,

Wanted: Live/work space for August or September
Preferably Minneapolis, under $600/month
I am a painter and musician, so flexibility as far as noise goes would be a plus!
