A new vision for the former MPS headquarters


LOGAN PARK — The future of the former Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) headquarters at 807 Broadway St. will begin to come into focus starting Dec. 17, when the site is officially put up for sale.

Originally the 186,000 square-foot building — square footage grows to over 250,000 counting three auxiliary buildings — cranked out 20,000 light bulbs per day as Minnesota Mazda Lamp Works, a subdivision of General Electric. It was purchased by MPS in 1930, and moved into in 1948.
