33 South Sixth

33 South Six, formerly known as International Multifoods Tower, is a skyscraper in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and stands 52 stories tall at 668 feet (204 meters). Its name comes from its address: 33 South Sixth Street, Minneapolis. It was completed in 1983.

33 South Sixth Street is a 50-story office building located in the heart of the Minneapolis' 64-square block skyway system. The building was constructed and opened in 1983 and is presently one of the tallest buildings in Minneapolis. Tenants include the Target Corporation, Meagher & Geer, and Stoel Rives. The Minneapolis City Center component of the project consists of a retail mall renovated in 2005, There are six skyway connections entering into City Center. The project also houses the Minneapolis Marriott at City Center, a 584-room full-service hotel. The project also contains a 687-stall parking garage office tower tenant and retail patrons. The basic concrete skyscraper grid is livened up a bit by irregularly spacing the vertical elements. In the wider middle section the spaces between columns is larger than at the ends of the building. This does little to make the structure more visually appealing, and might even do it a disservice by making it seem squatter than it really is.
