Iconic Pillsbury sign may be refurbished with LED lights


Dark since 2010, one of Minneapolis’ most famous riverfront signs may light up once again.

A proposal to refurbish the “Pillsbury’s Best Flour” sign that sits atop the red tile elevator at the former Pillsbury A-Mill complex with new LED lights will be discussed at the April 1 Heritage Preservation Commission meeting.

Beneath the sign, a $150 million renovation that will transform the complex into 251 apartments began last November.
