Minneapolis's new Mayor, Betsy Hodges', inauguration Celebration at the Thorp Building in NE Minneapolis was a wonderful time! Bohm Commercial Real Esstate is repositioning, leasing and managing the 250,000 SF creative light industrial property and was thrilled to be a part of Minneapolis history! An estimated 4,000 people attended!
The new Mayor had this to say about her inauguration celebration at the Historic Thorp Building:
"The One MPLS celebration last night was amazing. The music, the poets, the improv, the art, the FOOD, the MC, the space (how about those gorgeous bathrooms!) were all sweet and perfect celebrations of our city. A huge thanks to the people who made it happen: Camille J. Gage, Pablo Jones, and Andrew O'Leary who had the ideas and organized to make them real. Extraordinary and I cannot thank you enough. With them were Rosemary Kimball and Amanda Stewart. To the Inaugural Committee (Chairs Sara Perlman Barrow and Kristen McMullen, Andrew O'Leary, Lauren Beecham, David Boehnen, Erin Dady, Todd Klingel, Michael Langley, Kelley Lindquist, Tim Manning, Kate Mortenson, Tammy Lee Stanoch, Gia Vitali, Natalie Volin Lehr, and Alfonso Wenker) who got folks on board to make it possible. And to this crew, who took on their own pieces and made it happen: Kim Bartmann and Anne Sexton who pulled together their vision for that amazing food, Frank Brown at Infinity Alpha Omega Corp, Senator Scott Dibble, Jon Sander at the Thorp Building where all that magic happened, Peter Skujins with Slamhammer Sound and Light, and Meghan Syndergaard at Meghan Lyn Creative. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making such a wonderful, magical One MPLS night."

January 2, 2014 - Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges Inauguration Ceremony
The Minneapolis Mayoral Inauguration Ceremony is today at the Thorp Building! We are thrilled that that the inauguration as well as the upcoming Mayoral Celebration is here. My understanding is Betsy Hodges is very pro small business and has chosen The Thorp Building venue accordingly. The Thorp Building's and my role as catalysts and supporters in the development of Art A Whirl and the NE Minneapolis Arts District are very attractive attributes to her decision to do these events here.
We are thrilled to be a part of Minneapolis history and wish Betsy Hodges well!
