DMC is changing the face of Rochester, and the state of Minnesota is taking notice.
The past few months have brought a new visibility to America’s City for Health as statewide publications have begun to share the story of Destination Medical Center.
In May, journalist Matt McKinney and photographer Glen Stubbe from the Star Tribune joined DMC Economic Development Agency executive director Lisa Clarke on the 189-foot Kraus-Anderson construction crane at the site of the future Titan Hilton Hotel to get a birds-eye view of the development taking place across the city of Rochester and discuss what’s to come for the burgeoning city.
The project is a public-private partnership and one of the first to receive DMC funding. Currently, there are up to 80 employees on-site daily and is expected to reach more than 250 per day as progress continues.
“It was great to see firsthand how far along the project has evolved,” says Lisa Clarke, DMC Economic Development Agency’s executive director, who took part in the tour. “Projects like this are important as DMC evolves.”
