Mankato Intergovernmental Center

Mankato, MN | Government + Cultural

Overview

The City of Mankato's Intergovernmental Center houses a wide range of municipal departments in one facility located in the downtown district.


Opportunity

The City of Mankato wanted to construct a more convenient, single-stop location for residents to be able to conduct municipal business.

Solution

Through an innovative partnership, the Intergovernmental Center (IGC) now houses all City of Mankato offices as well as Independent School District 77 business and administrative offices. The conversion of the existing but blighted and nearly-vacant Mankato Place Mall into the citizen-friendly IGC represents the City’s commitment to downtown revitalization, doing more with less, and providing citizens with a convenient one-stop shop. Approximately half of the second floor is a renovation of a former department store while the remaining IGC is new construction. The facility includes offices, meeting and conference rooms, a state-of-the-art Council Chamber, and a two-story sky lit public lobby and atrium with an interactive information kiosk. The building is modern but has detailing such as brick corbelling, interior wainscot and stone accents that blend into the historic downtown area. A beautifully landscaped exterior plaza extends the building outdoors to serve as a community gathering place and is a catalyst for additional urban renewal projects.
