Aerial View of Pastoret Terrace

Duluth’s symbol of 19th Century opulence and 21st Century blight is the subject of this recent aerial video by Jack Rendulich. Pastoret Terrace is best known in modern times as the Kozy Apartments and Bar, which closed after a major fire ten years ago today — Nov. 15, 2010.

Since 2010 there have been at least four other fires at Pastoret Terrace:

  • March 18, 2011 – An arson fire causes minimal damage.
  • April 6, 2012 – Mark Starkovich somehow ignites the building while trying to blaze up his marijuana pipe.
  • April 29, 2020 – An arson fire burns through a boarded-up door frame.
  • Nov. 1, 2020 – Significant damage is caused by a fire that is still under investigation.

I've personally seen this building on fire three times.
