Ryan Companies US, Inc. announced that a new office tenant will be moving to its City Center development in Minneapolis.
Fox Rothschild LLP, a national law firm, is relocating its Minneapolis headquarters from the Two22 Tower to City Center in November. The law firm will occupy 39,081 square feet of Target’s former space.
“It’s the beginning of a new chapter for City Center,” said Jim Durda, City Center General Manager. “The impact of the pandemic was profound, but we’re optimistic that Downtown Minneapolis is on the uptick again. Fox Rothschild and its partners will benefit immensely from improved efficiencies and economics.”
Fox Rothschild will occupy half of floor 36 and all of floor 37. The space will be built out to the law firm’s specifications beginning in June and is expected to be completed in Q4 of this year. Francis Cauffman Architects is the architect of record and interior designer for Fox Rothschild’s new location.
Last year, Ryan announced several new tenants at City Center including Bell Bank, Chase Bank, Bad Axe Throwing and Tom’s Watch Bar. Construction will begin on Tom’s Watch Bar by the end of May and is anticipated to open later this summer. Bad Axe Throwing is hosting the US Open for the World Axe Throwing League in July.
City Center is a 51-story, 1.6-million-square-foot office and retail complex in the heart of the Minneapolis 64-square-block skyway system. In June of 2020, the retail building revealed a $3 million façade renovation and in January of 2021 became the largest property in Minnesota to earn the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum designation by the United States Green Building Council.
Ryan’s Real Estate Management provides management and building services to City Center. The company now manages more than 19 million square feet of property across the country including 7.5 million square feet in Minnesota.
