Faits

  • Designed by Rhodes Robertson of the Minneapolis firm of Hewitt & Brown.
  • This is the tallest building completed in Minneapolis during the 1930s.
  • The lighter section between the main tower and the neighboring McKnight Building was completed at a later date and stands 196 feet to the main roof slab.
  • Characteristic of American skyscraper design between the world wars, with subdued horizontal lines and an emphasized verticality. This effect is amplified by the dull-finish aluminum covering the spandrels between the tops and bottoms of all windows, resulting in light and dark vertical stripes which give an upward movement to the design.
  • The tower incorporates the steel frame of the Northwestern Bell Telephone Company Building, expressed by the presence of a gap in the east facade.
  • It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
  • This is the tallest building in downtown Minneapolis without direct skyway access.
  • Details symbolic of communication are incorporated into the decorations. The metal work of the 755 windows is of steel and cast aluminum. The doors are of bronze. Excepting a small amount of marble on the walls of the ground floor, all of these materials are from Minnesota.
  • Height increased from 346 feet to 416 feet with the addition of the rooftop antenna structure/penthouse in 1958, to the designs of Magney, Tusler & Setter.
