Tallest Building in Your City

Recommended Posts


They are getting ready to start our new tallest in Grand Rapids at 381'. Riverhouse at Bridgewater Place is residential with commercial on the lower floors. It is also the first building to be built in Michigan over 350' in 13 years, when One Detroit Center was built in 1992 at 619' (in Detroit).

In Minneapolis it is the IDS tower: 241 m, 55 stories and built in 1973.

The Wells Fargo Tower (formerly Norwest Bank) is 236 m, 57 stories and built in 1988.

The Wells Fargo Tower was purposely build to be shorter then the IDS. However, recently a construction worker on the Wells Fargo tower claims he altered the plans and added to the top of the building so that it would be the tallest building --it is a min-scandal!

IDS is the tall building on the Left (two antenn.). The WellsFargo building is on the far right.

I beleive the longer the wait, the higher the tower.

Not even our Wachovia insider knows anything.

The City passed funding for the arts that Wachovia wanted, BOA Chaiman supports the arts in the Wachovia plan. Wachovia said they would go higher, if the arts plan was approve.

Well we will see soon. :whistling:
