Findorff is excited to celebrate major project milestones! Hub on Campus Minneapolis, as well as Columbia County’s Administration and Health & Human Services buildings were recently completed. Additionally, Exact Sciences broke ground for its new headquarters at University Research Park.
Hub on Campus Minneapolis is a new 26-story, 429,000-square-foot mixed-use apartment tower near the University of Minnesota. It celebrated its completion with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on August 15. The $70 million project provides the Minneapolis community with 407 units, 707 beds, and retail space covering a quarter block. It took 22 months to build the project and was recognized a MNSHARP worksite for its outstanding safety record. This is Findorff’s third major student-housing project with the Hub developer Core Spaces.
Over 250 people were in attendance on August 18 for the grand opening of Columbia County‘s new Administration Building, the new Health and Human Services Building, as well as the unveiling of the renovated Courthouse. The new buildings and renovated courthouse total over 160,400 square feet. The building site straddles the canal between the Wisconsin and Fox Rivers and connects with a pedestrian bridge. The project provides Columbia County’s staff with new office space, conference rooms, exam rooms, courtrooms, and improved AV technology.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony was attended by many government officials, Columbia County staff, and community members. “Your buildings are solid and competently executed…They will last for generations,” said Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Daniel Kelly, a guest speaker at the dedication. The projects initially broke ground February 2016, taking 30 months to complete.
On August 14, Exact Sciences broke ground on Innovation One. This is a new five-story, 138,000-square-foot headquarters that will house team members and departments that are currently spread across multiple offices in the Madison area. Design with environmentally friendly building features, the Innovation One will be LEED® certified, promote collaboration, and more vibrant workspaces.
At the groundbreaking ceremony, Kevin Conroy, chairman and CEO of Exact Sciences remarked, “From our headquarters, Exact Sciences will continue to lead the war on cancer through early detection. Our product pipeline is strong and we expect this site to be home to new breakthroughs in cancer screening and diagnostics that will better the lives of people around the world.”
Completion of Innovation One is scheduled for early 2020. The project’s architect is Valerio Dewalt Train Associates.
