The Nicollet was a 56 story high rise Condominium building to be constructed at 10th and Nicollet in Minneapolis, MN. It was to be the toast of the town, situated along the walking mall between Orchestra Hall’s Peavey Plaza, and the famous IDS in  Minneapolis’s commercial and financial district.

The Janus faced design reflected it’s location wearing a stiff stone clad suit and glass tie facing the financial district, and a playful ruffle of glass balconies as it overlooked Orchestra Hall. A glowing steel arc bisected the faces, as though the joyful face was swooping into it’s work day partner. records the following facts:

  • This would have become one of the tallest buildings in the world principally designed by a female architect: Janis LaDouceur.
  • This would have become the tallest building in Minneapolis designed primarily by a locally-based architectural firm.
  • At the time it was announced, only New York, Chicago, and Miami had taller residential-only buildings in the United States.
