Managed by Hines, International Plaza is a 10-story, 280,000-square-foot office building in suburban Bloomington, Minnesota. Distinguished by a curtain wall of reflective blue glass accented with vertical white concrete columns, International Plaza was built in 1985. It offers striking views of downtown Minneapolis and Fort Snelling State Park from a location near the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport and the Mall of America. International Plaza is only 15 minutes by car from either downtown Minneapolis or downtown St. Paul. In addition to these logistical amenities, International Plaza offers tenants a warmly elegant lobby accented with marble and wood and featuring a two-story domed glass atrium overlooking a restaurant below. This lobby also connects to the building's six-level parking deck.

International Plaza earned the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance as a result of building features, infrastructure retrofits, and active building energy management. Building features include reflective, insulated window glazing, as well as a zoned heat pump system that allows control of heating and cooling by zone, rather than by entire floors. Lighting in building common areas has been retrofitted to 25-watt T8 lamps. On the energy management side, property managers have optimized heat pump operation/scheduling, aligning tenant comfort with energy savings; new scheduling of HVAC nighttime set-backs has helped extend these savings.

Hines has been recognized with multiple ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence and Partner of the Year awards. For a summary of the firm's participation in the ENERGY STAR program and other sustainability information, visit
