Constructed from 1927 - 1929, it was the first building built entirely by union labor. It is 447 feet, 3 inches in height and was the tallest Minneapolis building until 1971. It extends 60 feet underground with 4 basements. Faced with Indiana Bedford Limestone, it contains 750 window bays, and its construction shape and method were patented.
