Minneapolis, MN (May 2, 2024) — Winthrop & Weinstine, a leading law firm committed to the pursuit of progress, proudly announces the grand opening of its newly designed office space, located in the Capella Tower in downtown Minneapolis. The expansion and remodel project, spanning 107,000 square feet – a 10% increase in square footage from its previous footprint – marks a significant milestone in the firm’s effort to create a dynamic workplace tailored to the needs of its employees and clients.

The project, undertaken in collaboration with commercial real estate firms Cushman & Wakefield and Shorenstein, and interior design studio Yellow Dog, was driven by Winthrop & Weinstine’s vision to create a workspace that enhances employee well-being and collaboration while reflecting the firm’s values and commitment to its workforce. The design and planning process kicked off in 2022, with construction and renovation starting in August 2023, and spanning eight months. Employees officially moved into the new space on April 22, 2024.

The fully remodeled office now features six floors, including a new internal connecting stairway, multiple employee lounges, state-of-the-art technology infrastructure, wellness areas, larger collaborative spaces, and an exclusive outdoor deck, all aimed at enriching the firm’s culture. Over the last five years, Winthrop & Weinstine has experienced more than 20% staff growth, and currently has 322 employees of which 175 are attorneys.

“Our new office space represents a bold step forward for Winthrop & Weinstine as we continue to prioritize the well-being and productivity of our employees,” said Tami Diehm, President of Winthrop & Weinstine, “We are thrilled to provide our team with a modern, innovative workspace that fosters collaboration, creativity and professional growth.”

Unlike many companies reducing their physical footprint, Winthrop & Weinstine embraced the forward-looking opportunity to expand its presence in downtown Minneapolis, demonstrating its promise to help support and revitalize the local community. The firm’s decision to increase square footage underscores its commitment to meeting the needs of its staff and clients along with a vision for a vibrant future.

“We are pleased to continue our presence in this central location downtown and contribute to the economic growth of Minneapolis,” added Diehm. “Our investment in this new office space reflects our confidence post-pandemic and our dedication to bringing our employees back together in meaningful ways and keep providing exceptional service to our clients.”

Winthrop & Weinstine unveiled its new office space on May 2 in an open house for clients, government officials and friends. During the event, Mayor Jacob Frey issued a proclamation stating May 2, 2024 as Winthrop & Weinstine Day in the City of Minneapolis. This proclamation reaffirms the firm’s commitment to excellence, innovation, and community engagement in downtown Minneapolis.
