Ramsey County Regional Railroad Authority (RCRRA) announced today that Union Depot achieved LEED Gold Certification. This is a tremendous accomplishment that marries historic preservation with today’s sustainable building trends. Owned by RCRRA, Union Depot, originally built in the 1920s, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. RCRRA secured federal, state and county funding to finance the $243 million restoration project. The renovation began in 2011 with Mortenson as the design-build contractor, HGA Architects and Engineers as the building architect and engineer of record, and URS Corporation as transportation design and engineer. The renovation generated approximately 4,400 jobs.
