Nearly five years in the making, RBC Gateway brings a new vision for a historic downtown Minneapolis site. At just under two acres, the site is situated at Hennepin, Nicollet and Washington Avenues at what was once home to the infamous Nicollet Hotel. This area is historically referred to as Bridge Square, because it’s located at the southern foot of the Hennepin Avenue Bridge and is said to be Minneapolis’s original downtown. At the turn of the 20th century, the area was rebranded into The Gateway District to celebrate its status as the gateway into Minneapolis. Today, this area remains as the historic core of the city and the RBC Gateway project helps to celebrate these deep roots.
Within its 1.2 million square feet, RBC Gateway will house RBC Wealth Management’s world headquarters, the Pohlad Companies, and a Four Seasons Hotel – Minneapolis’s first 5-star luxury hotel. The tower will also include 33 private residential condos, a public plaza with green space, and a street-level restaurant.
RBC Gateway is United Properties’ newest acclaimed project, and the latest in a series of properties that create special places like Centennial Lakes, Ford Center, and The Nordic.
