Ridley Tower

Mankato, MN | Commercial

Overview

Part of Mankato’s largest downtown development in nearly two decades, the construction of Ridley Tower was a part of a multi-project expansion located within walking distance of the City’s business and entertainment district. ISG provided full design and construction administration services in preparation for the new five-story building to increase commercial and office space in the area.


Opportunity

Mankato-based Ridley, Inc. wanted a glass-structured building for its new headquarters in the dense and opportunistic downtown Mankato area to amplify recruitment efforts and company image while meshing with the downtown’s historic character.

Solution

The exterior of the Ridley Tower complements the aesthetic of Profinium Place Tower, as both buildings anchor opposite corners and feature the same expansive glazing and aluminum composite metal panels. After passing through Ridley Tower’s glass entry, visitors are welcomed into the reception area and lobby with contemporary lines and dimensional accent tile in crisp white and dark gray while a pop of blue that accentuates the stairwell. This pattern and color scheme continue throughout the building. A fifth-floor conference room provides additional meeting and gathering space for tenants, and features a white quartz countertop contrasted with dark maple casework. To maximize natural light in the offices, designs feature floor-to-ceiling windows strategically glazed and laid out to minimize glare distractions.
