Facts

  • Connected at ground level and by an 8th-floor skyway to Target Plaza North.
  • This project won a 2004 Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects Minnesota Chapter.
  • Target Plaza South is the tallest building completed in Minnesota during 2001.
  • A small plaza at the corner of 11th Street South & Nicollet Mall centers on Howard Ben Tré's "The Gathering Vessel" fountain.
  • The upper floors contain a unique lighting display of 130 thirty-foot glass pipes that can be illuminated in any color in any pattern. Light from 575-watt bulbs is shot through each tube and mixed by three color wheels representing the primary colors, and then distributed throughout the pipe by a unique film lining. The technology was developed by the locally-based 3M Corporation.
