As the revitalization of the former Dayton’s building in downtown Minneapolis continues, organizers of the project are asking Minnesotan’s to share memories of the iconic building via social media.
Dayton’s Project spokeswoman Cailin Rogers says they are already hearing stories not only coming from the Twin Cities Metro, but also from Greater Minnesota and surrounding states. “Whether it was driving 10 minutes or 20 minutes or several hours to go visit Dayton’s people remember doing that. And we wanted to have a platform to capture some of those memories that we keep hearing people share casually.” Sharing a memory could also give you a chance at winning one of 90 antique Easter eggs found during demolition on the site.
Rogers says moving forward their social media channels on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn will feature photos of the construction progress as well as renderings of what the finished project will look like.
