Profinium Place Tower – The Tailwind Group

A signature gateway to the City Center

Profinium Place Tower – The Tailwind Group

Mankato, MN

Profinium Place Tower is the first component of a major redevelopment project of nearly one block of downtown Mankato that serves as a signature gateway to the community’s City Center. The new office tower’s design blends historic brick on the lower floors-similar to the existing surrounding buildings-with modern glazing, aluminum composite metal panels and an angular geometry that transitions into a more contemporary style on successive floors.

The most distinguishing feature of this glass enclosed building is the structurally glazed cantilevered wedge that angles out over the building’s prominent corner, adding architectural detail at the intersection of Riverfront Drive and Warren Street. This feature also increases the rentable space of this 75,000 square-foot office complex. The exterior angles were based on site lines developed during the site analysis. This angular concept was integrated into the interior design details including the lobby floor tile, wall panels, visually striking light fixtures and accent tile in the common spaces. The lobby’s open staircase with clear glass railing serves as a focal point while showcasing the clean lines and sleek surfaces of the space.

This signature project, which is part of the continued revitalization of downtown Mankato, was increased in size with a seventh floor being added to the building, after demand spiked following intial plans and renderings being revealed. Profinium Place Tower, along with the adjacent development, has significantly increased Class A commercial office space in the downtown area and serves as a catalyst for continued urban renewal.
