February 27, 2018, Tuesday - Consolidated Public Office Building Pubic Meeting at Mill City Museum

Time: 6:00pm

Location: Mill City Museum, 704 S 2nd Street (first floor)

The City of Minneapolis is moving forward with plans for a new downtown office building near City Hall to better serve residents and businesses. 

The goal of the Consolidated Public Office Building is to strategically collocate City employees who are now working in several leased and owned sites scattered around downtown Minneapolis. The new City office building will be diagonally across from City Hall at 501 4th Avenue S, a site now home to a parking ramp. It will be a sustainable and resilient building featuring a welcoming, customer-centric public service area.  

City staff and the project design team of MSR Design and Henning Larsen will be hosting a community engagement meeting on Tuesday, February 27 to gather project input.
