The Northern Pacific Center

Brainerd, MN

The Northern Pacific Center is a premier mixed-use campus, offering unique spaces on the grounds of a former railroad complex. The addition of new tenant Roundhouse Brewery was the catalyst for site improvements that would not only accommodate Roundhouse but also future tenants. Widseth Smith Nolting’s team preserved a portion of the former railyard turntable in the parking area and designed additional improvements including sidewalks, drainage, and a patio for Roundhouse’s customers. The improvements preserve and build upon the unique qualities of the historic site.
