ICC MN Regional Center Project:

Thresher Square / Canopy by Hilton Minneapolis Hotel

Project Open and Seeking EB-5 Investment

Construction complete, Hotel Opened February 2019

Canopy by Hilton Minneapolis Mill District

Located at 708 Third Street South the 139,000 square foot Historic Thresher Square office building has been renovated to include the Canopy by Hilton Minneapolis Mill District and a new restaurant, the Denver based Bacon Social House (opening May 2019). Underground parking will be available in adjoining property developed by Sherman Associates on the site.

The Canopy by Hilton is an energizing new hotel that opened February 2019 in the heart of the Minneapolis’ Mill District. It is well connected to the rest of downtown by the temperature-controlled Skyway system and light rail which also provides quick connections to the Mall of America, MSP International Airport, University of Minnesota campus and downtown St. Paul. The new U.S Bank Stadium (home of the NFL Super Bowl 2018 and the Minnesota Vikings) is also located in Minneapolis’ Mill District as well.
