Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, in partnership with United Properties, have announced plans for Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Minneapolis, expected to open in early 2022 at RBC Gateway.

The new 34-storey building will be situated at the convergence of business and leisure in Minneapolis, at the top of Nicollet Mall, the city’s pedestrian thoroughfare. A few short blocks from the Mississippi River, the mixed use complex will also serve as RBC Wealth Management’s US headquarters.

“Minneapolis is a booming corporate hub in the Midwest, and has a vibrant leisure, cultural and arts scene, and we look forward to creating a place for locals and visitors alike to come together while raising the standard of luxury and service in the city,” says Bart Carnahan, Executive Vice President, Global Business Development and Portfolio Management, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “Our partners at United Properties have envisioned a new luxury focal point in Minneapolis, and we look forward to helping them bring that vision to life.”

The 222-key Four Seasons Hotel will also feature a restaurant and bar, and one of the largest pool decks in the city, overlooking the city’s downtown. A spa complex, open to both Hotel guests and day visitors, is also planned, along with extensive event spaces. On the uppermost floors of the building, 31 fully serviced Four Seasons Private Residences will boast impressive city and Mississippi River views.

The project is being designed by Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart and Associates.
