Destroyed for "urban renewal" and sat as a parking lot until the 1990s when the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis moved to a new location on this spot with this complex:



I really doubt this is our greatest loss. It was demolished in the late 80's. Not long before the FedReserve was started. It sat empty for quite sometime and nobody wanted to reuse it for anything that was worth the time or mone needed to be put into it. Most of the interior was remodeled in the 50's/60's that ruined the interior.
Our greatest loss was easily the Metroplitan Building.
