Facts

  • When the building is viewed from either side, it resembles the letter H.
  • The Hennepin County Government Center straddles 6th Street South between 3rd & 4th Avenues South, allowing for half-block plazas to the north (across 5th Street from Minneapolis City Hall) and the south (across 7th Street from Accenture Tower).
  • The adjacent block of 5th Street was permanently closed to vehicular traffic in early 2002 to make way for a new light rail station serving the Hennepin County Government Center and Minneapolis City Hall.
  • The building is connected to the US Bank Plaza and the 4th Avenue Parking Ramp by skyway.
  • The building was opened May 24, 1977.
  • 11400 tons of structural steel were used in the building's construction.
  • The building's foundation consists of 119 perimeter caissons, with the interior columns supported on spread footings.
  • The building is essentially two towers separated by an atrium rising the full height of the building. The west tower houses primarily administrative offices, while the east tower has many courtrooms.
