225 South Sixth contains a landmark 56-story tower and the 20-story Park Building connected by a 75-foot-high wintergarden. The chief architect for 225 South Sixth was James Ingo Freed. It is currently the second tallest building in Minneapolis after the IDS Center. The 45 foot tall semi-circular steel crown serves as a screen for cooling towers and antennae. It as built as the headquarters of First Bank, now US Bancorp. The building changed its name to 225 South Sixth in early 2002, after US Bancorp moved its headquarters to the new and smaller US Bancorp Center.
