New tower planned in Rochester following Mayo's legislative victory


A Rochester developer is proposing a 25-story mixed-use tower in downtown Rochester about a week after Minnesota lawmakers approved millions of dollars to support Mayo Clinic's multibillion dollar Destination Medical Center project, the Post Bulletin reports.

The new tower, which will be called "Broadway at Center," could become the city's tallest building as planning proceeds.

It will feature commercial office space and apartments, as well as a top-tier hotel, a high-end grocery store, restaurants and other upscale retail shops, Twin Cities Business reports..

Minnesota Public Radio says Rochester-based Titan Development and Investments declined to say how much the project will cost or name any potential tenants.

Construction is slated to begin sometime next year.

Another building featuring luxury apartment rentals and a food co-op is set to open later this year, according to MPR.

Rochester and Mayo Clinic leaders estimate the city will add more than 30,000 residents over the next 20 years as the medical giant expands its footprint in the region.
