min-ThorExterior (2) The new Regional Acceleration Center on the southeast corner of the Plymouth and Penn now provides an anchor for the N. Minneapolis neighborhood.

MINNEAPOLIS—This city is one of the most vibrant in the US, but its North Minneapolis neighborhood suffered from disinvestment for years. That has begun to change, mostly with the help of THOR Cos., a hometown firm that made a commitment to the once-neglected area. This Friday, THOR, the state largest black-owned business, will celebrate the opening of its new Regional Acceleration Center, a sleek, glass-and-metal sheathed multi-use building on the southeast corner of the Plymouth and Penn intersection.
