Saint Paul's Minnesota Building Getting a Makeover

The former 3M headquarters, now known as Beacon Bluff, isn't the only Saint Paul location currently being recycled for new purposes. The Minnesota Building in downtown Saint Paul MN is in the early stages of getting a long-awaited makeover.

Interior demolition has begun inside the 13-story building at 46 E. Fourth Street in St. Paul, the first step toward redeveloping the 101,000-square-foot, 80-year-old structure for 137 rental housing units. The plan also calls for 10,000 square feet of commercial and office space.
Overall, the projects will create 252 new housing units and preserve 35 affordable units; the city estimates that the work will provide as many as 300 construction jobs.
Sand Companies CEO Jamie Thelen describes the Art Deco Minnesota Building project as a “historic rehab.” He hopes to complete construction by the end of the year.
Plans to redevelop the Minnesota Building for residential use have been in the works for years. Recent tenants have been the Salon du Nord art gallery, Friends of the Mississippi River and Minnesotans for an Energy Efficient Economy. No specific new tenants for the commercial or office spaces have been named yet.
