The 53-story Capella Tower, at 225 South Sixth St. in Minneapolis, is the second-tallest building behind the IDS Center in Minneapolis. The Capella Tower is known by its architectural halo on the roof that covers some mechanical equipment.
The city of Minneapolis issued a building permit to RJM Construction on Jan. 29 for a renovation worth $7.08 million for the first and second floors of the downtown office tower at 225 South Sixth St.
Work includes renovation of the lobby space to include a new fitness center and coffee bar, relocating the escalators and a set of stairs, and upgrading finishes throughout the skyway level and lobby space, according to the permit. The Minneapolis office of Perkins + Will is listed as the architect. – Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal
