Minneapolis & St. Paul Home Tour – 2011

John Fena and Edwin Schumacher
1500 Dupont Ave N

With the goal to preserve and prepare this beautiful historic apartment building for many more years of urban living, we did a complete renovation of the bathrooms, kitchens, and converted the butler pantries to laundries. We integrated finishes that are stylish, classic, durable, and period appropriate. Large front and rear porches give air and openness with seasonal outdoor living while the original maple floors, rich woodwork, and leaded glass windows create hominess and warmth inside. Sunlight fills the building and highlights the open and spacious 1300 square foot layout in each unit. Skyline views from this property are breathtaking, and with a lively, diverse group of neighbors in an area convenient to many Minneapolis amenities, this is an unmatched urban living experience!
