Construction Begins on $70 Million Public-Private Partnership Project
ST. PAUL, MN – June 17, 2014
McGough Construction broke ground today on a new office tower at 425 W. Superior St. in downtown Duluth. The $70 million project is a public-private partnership between Duluth-based clothing retailer Maurices, the City of Duluth, and the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development. It will serve as Maurices’ headquarters and will be the largest commercial office tower in Duluth’s history. A public parking ramp and skyway will be included as part of the structure.
“We are excited to be a part of such a landmark project for the City of Duluth,” said Brad Wood, Chief Operating Officer of McGough. “We have been building projects in Duluth for decades and have developed strong connections to the community. Our successful history here, together with the City’s commitment to growth and revitalization, has inspired us to expand our own commitment to the Duluth market and more broadly, the Iron Range, in recent years.”
McGough’s prior work in Duluth includes projects for University of Minnesota – Duluth, the College of St. Scholastica, Essentia Health, and Memorial Blood Centers, as well as several housing projects.
Construction of the 425 W. Superior St. tower is slated for completion in spring of 2016.
