Medallions from the Star Tribune’s Building are in Storage in the Suburbs

By: Kristn Hare | Poynter

The six stone medallions that have been a part of The (Minneapolis, Minn.) Star Tribune’s building since 1947 now sit in a suburban storage facility, the Star Tribune’s Janet Moore told Poynter in an email.“

Right now the medallions are in the developer’s storage facility in a suburb north of Minneapolis,” Moore said. She wrote about their removal in March. “The fate of the medallions is uncertain, however. The developer, Ryan Cos., will tear down the building in 2015 to make way for a park, but it’s unclear what the park will look like and how the medallions will fit in. The demolition permit issued by the city for the destruction of the building did not specify how the medallions will be used.”
