Minneapolis law firm Henson Efron has moved its offices to the Capella tower in Minneapolis.
Capella Tower is a 58-story certified LEED Gold building in the center of downtown Minneapolis that was built in 1992. The building’s distinctive crown is an icon on the Minneapolis skyline.
This new location reflects the 45-year-old firm’s vision of a modern workplace. It supports how the nature of work has evolved over the past year and incorporates flexibility that will continue into the future. The firm will occupy 15 percent less space than Henson Efron’s previous footprint at U.S. Bank Plaza.
“Even though the space is smaller, it feels more open because of the design elements, including use of glass walls. It’s bright, contemporary and technically innovative – that’s our culture,” Henson Efron president and attorney Lisa Spencer sadi.
Considerable efforts were made to accommodate COVID protocols in the new build, keeping the health of the firm’s employees and clients at the forefront. State-of-the-art deionized technology has been added to collect dust, pollen and viruses in the space, and workstations are spread out with high glass dividers to support social distancing. Finishes were also carefully selected for easy sanitizing and many touch-free amenities were added.
The firm worked with ESG Architecture & Design on the build out design that had client experience as their main priority. “Overall, the space is inviting and open.” Spencer adds. “Clients will also like the convenient underground parking and increased security and first floor amenities.”
Capella Tower offers unique amenities available to tenants including access to a business center space for larger seminars and four conference rooms, fully equipped with audio and visual equipment.
After being downtown and skyway connected for so long, leaving the city center wasn’t considered. The 30-attorney law firm continues to be committed to downtown Minneapolis and sees its presence downtown as necessary for a firm of its stature.
