I met a friend here. It is conveniently located if you have business to conduct. Nothing too special architecturally, although the public space on the 2nd level is spacious and pleasant.

Great place to get what you need done. Friendly people once you get past the security system and metal detectors. Large spaces, one-stop shop. Beautiful building.

Not easy to find your way around, especially restaurants. Have to walk a ways to get the bus. Grandmas was great.

The folks working there were less than helpful. I dread doing anything in Hennepin county. Every other county I work in is far more accomodating and user friendly.
