Construction is underway in downtown Minneapolis to convert the old Shinders building into a new eatery that features a year-round rooftop restaurant, the Business Journal reports. The owner of the sushi restaurant chain Crave says the four-season rooftop dining area will have the option of being enclosed by Minnesota's largest all-glass retractable roof.

In a news release, Owner and CEO Kam Talebi said, "The vision behind this project was to take a very high-profile, yet extremely tired building on the corner of Hennepin Avenue and Eighth Street, and transform it to an iconic dining destination."

Talebi told WCCO the ability to open the restaurant to the elements will add a different sort of flavor to the eclectic American menu.

Union is expected to open by November.
