Radisson Hotel Group Americas Prepares for New Beginnings by Moving its Minnetonka Based Corporate Headquarters
Following its Americas Business launch the company is heading into the heart of the Twin Cities’ West End
Radisson Hotel Group Americas is setting its sights on a new corporate office location within the vibrant West End of St. Louis Park, Minnesota. Following the company’s Americas Business launch, it’s moving from the Carlson Towers in Minnetonka, Minnesota to the 10 West End corporate office building in early 2022. 10 West End is the first new construction office building in the Twin Cities in the last decade. Just steps from shopping, restaurants, and bars, the 10 West End location provides an added convenience for employees to run errands, grab lunch, or get together with colleagues after work hours. Situated at the corner of Highway 100 and 394, the Radisson Hotel Group Americas logo on the top of the building will get approximately 250,000 impressions each day from those driving by, further establishing the company’s presence in its new home.
Located on the seventh floor of the building, construction has begun on the nearly 35,000 square feet of space that started as a blank canvas and was designed specifically for the needs of Radisson Hotel Group Americas and its employees. Minneapolis based and woman-owned architecture firm, Studio BV, designed the office floor by incorporating unique elements from each brand within the company’s portfolio. Having all employees on the same floor will promote collaboration, while providing a variety of meeting spaces with boardrooms, huddles areas, and small focus rooms. The company will also leverage technology for video conferencing capabilities to accommodate a hybrid work model. Additionally, the office offers plenty of amenities including a lounge and game room. The building also has a fitness center, bike storage area, and a beautiful rooftop boasting incredible Minneapolis skyline views.
“The timing is perfect for a fresh start at a new and exciting home base for our corporate headquarters on the heels of our Americas Business launch,” said Jim Alderman, chief executive officer, Radisson Hotel Group Americas. “Having the opportunity to design our own space to accommodate the current needs of the company as we evolve the way we work to promote creativity, collaboration, and efficiency, will ultimately drive our success. On top of all that, we will be in a phenomenal location offering something for everyone.”
The new office building incorporates the company’s responsible business efforts as it is LEED Certified. While designing its new space, Radisson Hotel Group Americas is taking a thoughtful approach by using sustainable materials such as bamboo, low chemical fabrics, Cradle to Cradle Silver certified flooring, occupancy sensors throughout the floor, water-efficient fixtures, full LED lighting, along with aiming towards becoming a zero-waste office. Creating an inclusive environment is also a priority. Gender neutral bathrooms will be available and there will also be a fully-equipped wellness room to serve as a place of privacy for new mothers or anyone who needs a moment of rest and relaxation.
