On Sunday, crews from Vic’s Crane and Amerect placed a crane atop the roof. The 100,000-pound piece of equipment was safely positioned under RJM’s watchful eye.

MINNEAPOLIS (March 14, 2017)RJM Construction, a Minnesota-based general contractor, is busy at work converting the former Macy’s store in downtown St. Paul into the recently named Treasure Island Center.

Plans for the 540,000-square-foot building at 363 Wabasha St. include a mix of new office and retail tenants, topped off by an 1,100-seat hockey practice facility.

The rooftop NHL-sized ice rink, named The TRIA Rink, is the most distinctive feature of the building. Earlier this week, crews placed a 100,000-pound crane atop the roof to hoist structural steel, mechanical equipment and other supplies.

“This isn’t your typical construction project, but we’re up for the challenge and excited to be part of the team,” stated Joe Maddy, chief operating officer.

In addition to the core and shell renovations, RJM will lead tenant build-outs as well.

Those projects include space for the Minnesota Wild and Minnesota Housing Finance Agency. RJM will also build out a 6,000 square-foot orthopedic clinic for TRIA Orthopaedic Center on the street level of the building.

“A project of this complexity requires a contractor with extensive experience. The scope includes 800 stalls of parking, a rooftop rink, office, medical and retail space along with a separate building component for a to-be-named national drug store,” stated Randy McKay, developer with Hempel Cos. “We are very pleased with the progress RJM Construction has made thus far.”
