The Rand Tower, at 26 stories, was one of the tallest buildings in Minneapolis when built in 1929. The stock market crashed, but the building stayed up, and today it's slated to become a luxury hotel. Its design contains Art Deco elements but is officially listed as Moderne. Some of the ornamentation has an aviation theme; the figures over the entrance represent Mercury and are holding biplanes.
Many different doors open onto Hennepin Avenue, a street in Minneapolis with a history best described as 'colorful'. Few have a stranger story than this revolving brass door: originally installed in 1880 in the Commodore Hotel in New York City, connecting it to Grand Central Station; saved from demolition and placed in the Minneapolis Lumber Exchange Building in 1979. The Lumber Exchange Building was, on completion in 1885, the tallest building in Minneapolis and is today the oldest building outside of New York City with 12 or more floors.
