A Century old st. paul landmark.

The Golden Rule Building is a six (6) story office building consisting of approximately 300,000 square feet (excluding lower level), with an average floor plate of 50,000 square feet, located in the heart of downtown St. Paul. This building was first established as a retail store in 1886 and went through several stages of renovation, when in 1983 it was converted to office space, with all the newest technologies.

The Golden Rule Building leads city and state standards when it comes to health, wellness and sustainability. This iconic and distinguishable building is truly one of a kind.

The Golden Rule Building leads city and state standards when it comes to health, wellness and sustainability.

Touchless sinks, toilets and soap dispensers have been installed throughout the common areas in the building for a healthier and cleaner environment. Every floor has a filtered water station for use which is great for reusable water bottles.

The Golden Rule Building has a 2-story lobby atrium with the largest indoor park in St. Paul that has various greenery, two fountains, and benches, making it a peaceful area to relax. This biophilic design with live plants and natural elements help to reduce tension, anxiety, and depression.

The building is the first in St. Paul to have implemented centralized waste collection in a multi-tenant building. Since 2015, the building has provided organic recycling for restroom paper towels and in 2019 the organics recycling program expanded organics recycling to all areas of the building.
