New Identity for a Minneapolis Icon
Located in the historic Midland Bank building, Emery has a storied history and plenty of charm. Constructed in 1906, the building was praised by the city’s elite for its luxurious and, for the time, innovative materials.
The History of Emery
As one of Minneapolis’ most historic structures, the ten-story Richardsonian Romanesque building was designed by Franklin and Louis Long, known as the architects of Minneapolis’ best-known buildings of that era. At the 1906 opening, the building was praised for its luxurious and innovative materials and architecture. Housing Midland National Bank, the building provided a beacon for the community—a place where all could experience welcoming service.
In the early century, the bank provided financial services to community groups other banks refused to serve. In the 1950s and 1960s, as many businesses moved to the suburbs, the bank intentionally stayed put, reimagining their services, like adding a drive-up teller (now our porte cochere), to invest in the downtown’s viability and stability.
Plans to convert the Midland Bank building into a hotel began in 2006 with aims to preserve the building’s architectural charm. The renovation found creative ways to combine the historic building’s classic, marble-columned elegance with the hotel’s new sophisticated comforts and, at the time, state-of-the-art technology. The building opened to the public in 2008 as The Hotel Minneapolis.
Finished in 2019, the renovation for Emery revived earlier aims to accentuate the building’s history,
beautiful materials, and place in the community. Our design encompasses the spirit and nostalgia of the
past through marble architecture and art deco touches pairing with fresh energy and the synergetic
culture that Minneapolis embodies today.
