VAST Phase 2 – Building A
This campus is comprised of four (4) buildings centered on the intersection of 11th Avenue South and 3rd Street South in Minneapolis. This specific project for Valspar involves Phase 2 of the restoration and reuse of Building #4. The laboratory space occupied the lower and first floors completed as Phase 1, leaving most of the rest of the building unoccupied and only partially renovated. The success of the VAST Center made corporate leaders take a second look at the building. Response was so positive that Valspar recognized “this is who we are– this is where we belong;” and immediately commenced with Phase II, and commissioned HCM and the original design/construction team to design and build out the additional three floors of offices within the facility to accommodate Valspar’s corporate headquarters.
