Advance Thresher/Emerson-Newton Implement CompanyEdit profile
The Advance Thresher/Emerson-Newton Implement Company buildings in Minneapolis, Minnesota are a pair of buildings designed by Kees and Colburn. The two buildings are united under a common cornice and appear to be a single structure. However, the two buildings were actually built four years apart. The Advance Thresher Company building was built in 1900 and has six floors. The adjacent Emerson-Newton Plow Company building was built in 1904 and has seven floors. They are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The architecture of the buildings was influenced by Louis Sullivan. They are ornamented with terra cotta details that are more Classical Revival in nature. The buildings were renovated into offices in the 1980s.
