The Midtown Exchange is a large commercial building located in South Minneapolis. It is the largest building in Minneapolis, Minnesota in terms of leasable space and is the second-largest building in the state, after the Mall of America in nearby Bloomington. It was built in 1928 as a retail and mail-order catalog facility for Sears. The building remained occupied by Sears until 1994 and in 1995 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The building lay vacant until 2005 when it was transformed into multipurpose commercial space.
Midtown Exchange has a sister building in Boston, Massachusetts called the Landmark Center. The two buildings were both built in the 1920s and their designs are nearly identical. Like Midtown Exchange, the Landmark Center is a former Sears warehouse which has since been renovated into commercial space.
