According to the building's designers from Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum, a St. Louis architectural firm, the structure strikes a balance between the stability, security and strength of the Federal Reserve and the physical and historical significance of the site itself. The design respects Minneapolis' Warehouse District to the south and west and the Mississippi River to the north while meeting the functional needs of the Bank.

The building actually consists of two structures: an eight-story office tower and a four-story, terraced operations center. The structures are connected by an outdoor courtyard and underground and above-ground passageways.
