Faits

  • From an 82-foot square base the building rises in a series of setbacks, some of them very shallow and used only to emphasize the terminal treatment of the tower.
  • Indirect lighting and panels of glass etched to simulate clouds add to its effectiveness as a symbol of aviation.
  • The lobby and hallways are decorated in marble, glass, nickel, and vividly colored enamel.
  • The lobbies on the Marquette Avenue side are faced with Tosa grey Nelle marble set in large slabs with panels of matching grain.
  • The tower was built by Rufus R. Rand, Jr., a member of the family which owned the Minneapolis Gas Company. He was inducted into the Minnesota Aviation Hall of Fame in 1993.
  • The W Minneapolis - The Foshay was built at approximately the same time, also by a family which had built a utility empire.
  • It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.
  • The interior floors feature star and moon designs.
  • Forest Lake-based Gaughan Companies announced in Autumn 2004 that they will purchase and renovate the Rand Tower, keeping it as office space.
  • The building is connected by skyway to One Financial Plaza, the 517 Marquette Ramp, Six Quebec, and the The Westin Minneapolis.
