Ryan proposes new Downtown East office tower

Updated: July 19, 2016 - 6:27 pm

Ryan Companies is proposing a new office tower in Downtown East near U.S. Bank Stadium.

The Minneapolis-based developer has released renderings of its 17-story Block One office tower and has submitted plans to the City Planning Commission Committee of the Whole.

The glass tower project at Park & 4th would feature approximately 414,000 square feet for office users and a skyway connection to the stadium and nearby towers, according to the plans. About 6,000 square feet of space on the street and skyway levels, in addition to a potential restaurant space on the top floor, is slated for retail tenants.

Ryan is proposing to build the tower in front of the 1,610-stall parking ramp it built for the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority.

The developer hasn’t released information regarding a schedule for the project or if it has an anchor tenant for the building.
