Farrington Building

This building at 312-316 University Av., with apartments above and main floor retail and office space below, is one of University Avenue’s remaining and largely intact Victorian retail buildings. It has housed many different retail businesses over the years.

In recent years it has been home to the Minnesota Women’s Consortium. It was designed by Albert Zschocke and built in 1889. Note that it has much of its original exterior detailing, including rounded bay windows on its west side upper spaces. One charming feature is a little balcony between the windows.
