That's reassuring. If you've been inside the building, you know it's a remarkably intact mid-century stunner.Cattanach said Opus will preserve the 1950s feel of the building.
“We are trying to embrace and retain a lot of the original materials that are in the space,” he said. “A lot of the original finished are timeless, like the 1950s era marble wall coverings and terrazzo flooring. Those will be kept throughout.”
The 3701 Wayzata campus has room for additional development, if Opus chooses. The most likely building site on the property is on a big surface parking lot, which constitutes the majority of 1,200 parking stalls for the building. Opus does not have plans to expand, but isn’t ruling that out, either.
“We are developers and we have looked at, on a preliminary basis, how to densify the site,” [Opus VP] said.
