To start the New Year right, Envision Minnesota is purging files, packing our belongings, and moving to a fabulous Energy Star building that beckons from Minneapolis!
We’re sad to leave St. Paul, but being a statewide organization, we set our sights on finding the best fit for our office needs, wherever that might take us. Our divining rod led us across the river to The Greenway Building, an award-winning building that is green by design and location.
Built in 1999 by the Green Institute, the Greenway (formerly known as the Phillips Eco-Enterprise Center) has 200 solar panels on its roof to reduce electrical consumption, a geothermal heating/cooling system to reduce energy consumption, a green roof/rooftop garden and native prairie grass lawn to enhance rain water retention and eliminate the need for lawn irrigation. The Greenway lies just a block away from the Lake Street light rail station on the Hiawatha line, is accessible by bus routes along Lake Street and is adjacent to the Midtown Greenway bike path.
Additionally, we have a host of new neighbors with missions complementary to our own, including the Will Steger Foundation, Great Plains Institute, Peace Coffee Roastery, Nonprofit Assistance Fund, Native Americans in Philanthropy, Headwaters Foundation for Justice, Fox Consulting, and many more! We look forward to connecting with them over Peace Coffee and on the green roof.
We invite you to drop in and visit us in our new location when you’re in the area.
Our new address and phone number:
