2022 Minnesota Real Estate Journal Awards - Redevelopment - Education & Training Category Winner
The Mohagen Hansen team was selected to provide architecture and interior design services for The Abubakar As-Sadique Islamic Center’s (AAIC) new Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) school for 6th-9th graders called AIM Academy. The AAIC Board of Trustees and Executive Team understood the importance of breathing new life into the community of South Minneapolis. With the support of an international Islamic funding source and 2 million dollars in donations from the community, this vision became a reality. Mohagen Hansen worked with the client to repurpose this vacant, toxic metal stamping and ammunition factory into a beautiful school and gymnasium where the next generation can flourish.
