This high-rise is Seward Tower East, also known as Bor-Son Towers. It’s an apartment complex in the Seward neighborhood of south Minneapolis. I drive by it on my way to and from work and can see it from the back window of my nearby attic apartment. I’ve long appreciated its clean, modernist architectural style. Built in 1968-69, Seward Tower East is 21 storeys high and has 640 units of moderate-income, privately financed housing. It is the twin of the nearby Seward Tower West. These two buildings are the tallest in the Seward neighborhood of the Longfellow Community in Minneapolis.

Thanks, Brian! I find myself amost obsessed with this building, especially when it's all aglow in the afternoon sun.
