MINNEAPOLIS – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announces that it has been selected to lease 50 South Sixth, a 29-story, 698,606-square-foot office building in Minneapolis’s Central Business District. Transwestern Principal Reed Christianson and Vice President Trinette Wacker will provide Agency Leasing services for the asset on behalf of the owner, Mapletree Investments.

Transwestern also won the assignment to manage Mapletree’s portfolio in 2022, and now provides property management services to 50 South Sixth as well as its assets in Richardson, Texas and Oakland, California.

“We’re thrilled to take on the leasing efforts for 50 South Sixth,” said Christianson. “Transwestern’s services are even more effective when we both manage and lease a property. This partnership is guaranteed to elevate the building for Mapletree by providing a seamless tenant experience that leads to vacant space leasing and strong tenant retention.”

50 South Sixth was designed by architect Peter Van Cechten of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and opened in 2001, making it the newest Class A office building in Minneapolis. The building was designed with tenant efficiency in mind and has larger than traditional floor plates for the market. Tenant amenities include the @9 Lounge and Conference Center, as well as a state-of-the-art fitness center. Additionally, tenants can enjoy weekly and monthly events as part of the 50 South Sixth Experience Program.

Mapletree recently completed a multimillion-dollar refurbishment at 50 South Sixth, featuring leading-edge technology focusing on safety, security and wellness. This includes an enhanced visitor management system and a platform that regulates indoor air quality and maximizes energy efficiency.

Located in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, public transportation options include access to the bus line and light rail station. The building is also connected to the Minneapolis Skyway System at four locations.
