Faits

  • This is Cesar Pelli's second major commission in Minneapolis, the first being the landmark Wells Fargo Center.
  • Before Gateway District urban renewal and the construction of the previous main library, the Bank of Minneapolis Building stood on the northeast corner of this site.
  • This is one of approximately $500 million in arts and cultural institution expansions scheduled for completion in Minneapolis through 2007. Others include the Walker Art Center Theater Tower, the new Guthrie Theater, an expansion of Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and an expansion of the Children's Theater Company.
  • Before demolishing the old library building, the Minneapolis Public Library moved into facilities at Marquette Plaza, two blocks to the north and east. This largest branch of the library system operated there until early 2006.
  • An 18,560 square foot green roof covers the north half of the building. This is the first large-scale utilization of green roof technology in Minnesota.
  • The new Central Library opened May 20, 2006.
  • The new library displays virtually all of the 2.4 million books in the collection, an increase from only 15% of the collection on publicly-accessible shelves in the previous building.
  • The proposed Minnesota Planetarium and Space Discovery Center atop the New Central Library could be completed by 2010.
