Lakewinds Food Co-op
Recipient of the 2014 Minnesota Shopping Center Association STARR Award - Redevelopment
Lakewinds Food Co-op in Richfield, Minnesota is the third location and first new construction building for the 42 year old food co-op. The Lakewinds Richfield location includes a cafe and coffee shop, as well as second floor office space with views of an adjacent lake. Throughout the design and construction process the project team focused on creating an economical, energy efficient building. To help achieve these goals, the project participated in the Xcel Energy Design Assistance Program.
The store is located within a larger development project along Richfield Lake by The Cornerstore Group. Lakewinds is the first phase of development on the site. Later phases of the development include retail space, apartment buildings, and a lakeside walk with pavilion.
The 24,400 square foot store was completed in June, 2014.
Charles Levin Architects maintains an ongoing relationship with Lakewinds Food Co-op assisting with projects at all of the store locations as well as design assistance with their headquarters.
