New vision for a historic site.
Known as the “Gateway to Minneapolis,” the site at Third St. and Nicollet Ave. once featured a grand hotel and a park extending to the Mississippi River. But over 25 years ago, the hotel was torn down and the park replaced by a parking lot.
We envision a better future for this historic site.
Working with the City of Minneapolis and our project partners, we are planning a 30-40 story tower with a 5-star hotel, a public plaza, and retail on the street level. The development will be connected by skyway to the César Pelli-designed Minneapolis Central Library.
“This would be a stunning addition to Minneapolis – and one that we believe would be warmly embraced by the community.”–Bill Katter, President and Chief Investment Officer
