In spring of 2022, the integrated Real Estate, Interior Design and Construction Team was challenged to remodel the Court International Building’s Interior Atrium and to discover and celebrate the building’s history in St. Paul, MN. The public Atrium had not been updated since the building was converted from an industrial property in the 1990’s.
The new design achieved 3 main goals:
- Special care was taken to recognize and celebrate the building’s 100-year history within the community.
- The design improved the Public Spaces to create two shared hubs for informal collaboration with inviting new seating options for tenants and guests.
- The details featured the installation of new energy-efficient lighting throughout to supplement the abundant natural daylight, decrease energy costs, and increase safety and environmental sustainability.
Today, with the Design Team’s creative solutions, Court International continues to be an iconic landmark in the walkable Midway neighborhood. It currently offers creative mixed-use and functional public spaces, flexible conferencing space, and a nostalgic restaurant to the community. Tenants benefit from Class A office space, a fitness center, bike storage, abundant underground parking, and access to the light rail system.
