  1. The Bunge Grain Tower is a dilapidated structure in Minneapolis' Como neighborhood.

    Nearby residents became concerned over the safety of the building after a University of Minnesota undergraduate student fell to his death while exploring the building's empty floors.

    Many now consider the building to be an urban museum of sorts due to the vast amounts of graffiti covering the walls inside the building. Despite the owner's best attempts to seal off any entrances, urban explorers have consistently managed to gain access to the structure through hidden and difficult entrance points.

    Recent plans called for the last remaining Bunge Tower to be converted into condominiums for University faculty and graduate students; however, these plans were halted due to a slump in the housing market. Posted by: devinberg on Feb 07, 2009 (2) (0)
