Sons of Norway Building (b. 1962; d. 2018)

No, it wasn’t historically designated, or otherwise especially memorable.

But, for long-time Twin Cities residents (I qualify), the six(?) story Sons of Norway building at Lake and Humboldt still qualified as a local landmark going back . . . as long as I can remember.

In my own case, I recall taking the #17 bus as a teen to go to the dentist there; then to get my braces on and — seemingly an eternity later — off (the building was a favorite of dentists and orthodontists); and finally, decades later, to take my kids to the Wells Fargo branch in the lobby to open their first checking accounts.

Taking its place on the 2.5 acre site:  a multi-use project anchored by apartments.
