Otto client turns barn into new event center

Steve Schussler and his $1 million barn renovation, now named Green Acres Event Center, was featured in the Star Tribune today.  In 2010 Schussler purchased the barn (located at 14150 Pioneer Trail in Eden Prairie) from the County.  It originally faced extinction for a road-widening project until history buffs argued that it should be preserved.  The barn is one of only a half dozen in the nation with the 1940s arch-roof architecture.  

Schussler turned the barn into an elegant event center, including crystal chandeliers, a wine cellar in the silo, vintage jukeboxes, pianos, artwork and more.  It will be open in Spring of 2013.

Otto Associates surveyed the property and barn last January and wish Mr. Schussler continued success.
