The Cowles Center

Historical Restoration

Project Description

Centered around the original Shubert Theatre, built in 1910, this project involved restoring the historical theater and constructing additions and connections to create a flagship for dance in Minnesota. The performing arts center includes the newly refurbished 500-seat Goodale Theater (formerly the Shubert); the Hennepin Center for the Arts; the state-of-the-art Target Education Studio; and the new U.S. Bank Atrium.

Engrained in the McGough culture is an affinity for true craftsmanship and an appreciation for the rich stories contained in buildings. Our passion for helping clients restore structures and features of historical interest has led us to become an industry leader in our market with respect to this specialty work. Whether bringing iconic buildings like the St. Paul Cathedral back to their natural splendor or breathing new life into historic landmarks like Minneapolis’ Shubert Theatre – now the Cowles Center and the premier dance venue of the Upper Midwest – we bring a well-earned reputation and decades of relevant experience to every restoration project we undertake.
