The Nicollet


Structure in General

unbuilt [cancelled]
core plus outrigger


residential condominium
commercial office mercantile parking


  • This was one of two condominium projects announced for the block bounded by Nicollet Mall and Marquette Avenue from 10th to 11th Streets in the second half of 2004. The other was 1016 Marquette, a small tower of just 8 full-floor units, which was canceled in late 2006.
  • The main design element is a curved fin sweeping along the east and west facades and extending beyond the roofline.
  • As of June 2005, reservation deposits had been made on 56% of the available units.
  • Opus and Hunt dropped the plan for this primarily-residential tower in mid-2007 in favor of a new mixed-used building (The Nicollet) dominated by office space.
  • It would have replaced the Ladd Corner building, which housed Let It Be Records, a branch of the Sawatdee Thai restaurant, and Key's Cafe.
  • The local development team joined with national player Hines Interests LP in Spring 2006 to move the project forward. Hines was dropped in favor of locally-based Opus in March 2007.
  • Typical units ranged from 750 to more than 3000 square feet, and were offered for $275,000 to over $3,000,000.
  • If it had been built, this would have become the tallest residential building in the Midwest, outside Chicago.
  • The neighboring Handicraft Building (on 10th Street) and Church of Scientology Building (on Nicollet Mall) would have remained.
  • The Minneapolis Planning Commission approved this project on February 7, 2005.
  • At the time it was announced, only New York, Chicago, and Miami had taller residential-only buildings in the United States.
  • More than 160 non-binding reservations to purchase units had been made by April 2005, before any marketing had begun.
  • Marketing that began in May 2005 featured the tag "No Address Required", a reference to the building's prominent location directly on Nicollet Mall.
  • This would have become one of the tallest buildings in the world principally designed by a female architect.
  • The developers struck a deal with the neighboring Church of Scientology in July 2005, which allowed the tower to grow by another 4 floors and 26 feet.
  • This would have become the tallest building in Minneapolis designed primarily by a locally-based architectural firm, surpassing the Campbell Mithun Tower.
