DEED Headquarters Set to Move to Downtown St. Paul’s Great Northern Building in 2021
Thursday, February 04, 2021
St. Paul – The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) today announced that its headquarters will move to the Great Northern Building at 180 East Fifth Street in Saint Paul, Minnesota. This two block move in downtown St. Paul, which will occur by August 1, 2021, will be DEED’s first relocation in nearly two decades.
As DEED evaluated the possibility of moving, it executed a thorough three-year planning and evaluation process, and was focused on best serving Minnesotans and businesses across the state. This included an analysis to re-examine space needs, and take account of future teleworking trends, to both improve the experience for DEED’s workforce and save taxpayer money with a reduced footprint.
The new location in the Great Northern Building remains within one block of the METRO Green Line light rail and easily accessible by bus as well.
