Fakten

  • Building was demolished in 1961-62, perhaps the greatest architectural loss in Minneapolis history.
  • The demolition of this building and hundreds more in the name of Gateway District Urban Renewal sparked the contemporary Minneapolis historic preservation movement.
  • The Metropolitan Building was the tallest commercial building in Minneapolis from 1890 until 1914, when the Soo Line Building, now called 501 Marquette, was completed.
  • The green granite for the base was quarried in Conway, NH by the Maine and New Hampshire Granite Company.
  • This is the tallest building in downtown Minneapolis to be demolished intentionally. The Northwestern National Bank Building, though taller, was destroyed in a fire.
  • This site is now occupied by 330 2nd Avenue South.
  • The floors in the central atrium were glass, allowing light to filter down from the skylight.
  • This was the first building in Minneapolis to reach 12 floors overground, second only to St. Paul's Pioneer Building in the state of Minnesota.
  • The 8-floor Temple Court Building, built in 1886 and demolished in 1958, was considered this building's predecessor, in design and composition.
  • The upper nine floors were clad in brown Lake Superior sandstone, quarried by the Portage Entry Red Stone Company.
  • Upon completion, the building contained a Turkish Bath, rooftop promenade, concert garden, law library, and top-floor restaurant.
