180 East Fifth Building

Saint Paul, Minnesota - Pen and Ink - 1999

“In 1914, eager to exhibit his power and empire, Saint Paul’s famous railroad magnate James J. Hill commissioned Chicago architect Charles S. Frost, designer of St. Paul's Union Depot, to erect him an edifice worthy of Hill's name’. When the massive, fourteen-story building, which would house Hill's Great Northern Railroad, the Northern Pacific Railroad and the First National Bank and related Northwestern Trust Company, opened in 1916 it’s square footage made it the largest office building west of Chicago at the time and in Minnesota until 1971 when Minneapolis’ 51-story IDS tower opened.” This was a commissioned piece by Frauenshuh Companies which owned the Great Northern Building, property in 1999 - since renamed ‘180 East Fifth’.
