Facts

  • The Gonda Building was awarded First Place in the healthcare category from the International Interior Design Association Northland Chapter.
  • Every floor connects to the Mayo Building, just to the south, and a 7-level skyway crosses Center Street to connect to the Charlton Building and Rochester Methodist Hospital to the north.
  • It replaced the Damon Parkade, demolished in 1998.
  • The first occupants began moving in during October 2001, and phased move-ins continued through 2003.
  • The Gonda Building was constructed in two phases, floors 1-11 (topped out March 17, 2000) and then floors 12-21 (topped out January 12, 2001).
  • The building also received an 'Honorable Mention' Vista Team Award from the American Society of Healthcare Engineering and was cited for 'Excellence in Masonry Design and Construction' by the Minnesota Concrete and Masonry Contractors Association.
  • The Gonda Building was designed to accommodate up to 30 floors in future expansions. If implemented, these vertical expansions would make this one of the tallest hospital buildings in the world.
  • This was the tallest building in Rochester from 2001 until late 2003 when it was surpassed by Broadway Plaza.
