Property Info

Located within the core of Minneapolis’ central business district (CBD) at 225 South Sixth St., Capella Tower one of the area's most prestigious properties. The Pei, Cobb, Freed & Partners' design is a dazzling assemblage of rectilinear and cylindrical forms, incorporating both a 58-story tower and the 20-story Star Tribune Building. The project’s combined rentable area is 1,401,233 square feet.

The building was completed in 1992 and is constructed of structural steel with a façade of vision and spandrel glass with granite accents. Arguably the tallest building in the upper Midwest, Capella Tower is approximately 776 feet in height. An icon on the Minneapolis skyline, the top of the building is adorned with a distinctive twinkling crown. The visually complex exterior wraps around three interior atria, two fountains, and a 75-foot-high winter garden, which creates the hub for retail amenities in the project including seating areas, an art gallery, marble fountains, and provides soothing glimpses of green during the long Minnesota winters. The interior common areas of the building are granite and polished terrazzo floors, artisan plaster walls, and marble elevator lobbies. Original works of art appear in every corner of the 1st and 2nd levels adding interest and beauty.

Project amenities include a 563 stall underground parking facility, a building conference center that includes a full compliment of audio and visual systems, a hair salon, art gallery, and food and coffee providers.

The Capella Tower is located in the heart of the Minneapolis CBD allowing tenants direct access to major freeway arteries and is conveniently located with the primary northbound bus lane at the front door on Second Avenue, only one block from the light rail system. The project is located on the Minneapolis Skyway System – a system of enclosed pedestrian bridges and indoor walkways connecting over 60 city blocks in the downtown core allowing year-round indoor access to retail and office destinations in the CBD.
