Fakten

  • Building is 341 feet to base of flagpole, from original linen drawings at University of Minnesota.
  • A colossal statue "Father of Waters" by Larking Goldsmith Mead is located in the 4th Street rotunda.
  • The building is constructed of red granite, and designed in the Richardsonian Romanesque style. It occupies a block 300 feet square.
  • The Minneapolis City Hall was originally constructed with a terra cotta roof. This was replaced in the 1950s with the current copper roof.
  • The building is connected by tunnel to the US Federal Courthouse and the Hennepin County Government Center.
  • The adjacent block of 5th Street was permanently closed to vehicular traffic in early 2002 to make way for a new light rail station serving Minneapolis City Hall and the Hennepin County Government Center, just to the south.
  • The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
  • It was the tallest structure in Minneapolis until completion of the W Minneapolis - The Foshay in 1929.
  • Ford Brothers Glass Company designed and manufactured the rotunda's stained glass windows and skylight.
  • A 'green' roof will be installed in 2008; green roofs feature plants which absorb rainwater, mitigate the effects of urban heat islands, and help insulate the building.
  • The building is an excellent example of the romanesque style applied to municipal buildings in the United States. The City Hall and County Courthouse just a few miles to the east in St. Paul is an excellent example of the art moderne style, typically employed just a couple of decades later.
