Honoring the rail that built the West: From historic repair shop to stunning office space.

Atrium Office Building serves as a prime example of historic restoration. Originally built in 1885 as part of a multi-building repair facility for Northern Pacific Railroad, “Como Shops” served as a major economic driver that contributed to the growth and vitality of St. Paul and the country’s ability to expand westward. The property was renovated and repositioned as its original use was phased out and the campus changed ownerships. In the mid-1980s, it was converted into a retail and restaurant destination that was unable to thrive due to competitive pressures. The campus is fondly remembered for hosting the Minnesota Children’s Museum, the Twin Cities Model Railroad Museum and the Dakota Jazz Club.

Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, the beautiful brick-and-timber building was acquired by Wellington in 2002 and repositioned to attract more than a dozen professional and service firms. The building includes a beautiful, open central atrium, and the campus features a large landscaped courtyard and several elements from its former life, including a rail car that houses the building’s back-up generator. Located in the heart of Energy Park, the campus is a short distance from sports fields, local shops, restaurants, public transportation, Como Lake and all things Como Park (golf course, pool, parks, trails, zoo & conservatory).
