The Nordic Office Building
Project Type: New Office Building
Client: United Properties
The Nordic is a 200,000 sq ft custom multi-tenant office building and public plaza located in the historic and trendy North Loop of Minneapolis. LHB, in conjunction with Hartman Cox Architects (design architect), was responsible for the overall project coordination, design detail assistance, agency review, construction document preparation, and construction administration.
In addition, the project is the first registered WELL Building project in Minnesota. LHB leads the WELL Building effort in pursuit of Core and Shell Gold level certification. The difficult site required intense coordination between design disciplines to meet Minneapolis development requirements and the historic district design guidelines, accommodate the high-water table, and dodge an underground creek. LHB is also responsible for landscape design and civil engineering for the project. The plaza supports year-round programming and provides much needed green space for the neighborhood.
