Foshay Tower

Foshay Tower


Winter Fortress



Windsor Simon Pearce purchased Foshay Tower with Ortega’s death. He then sold it piecemeal to various companies and private holders, but the supernatural world knows that the Winter Court now controls it. The Summer Court views this intrusion as an act of aggression.

Trick currently resides in the upper floors of the tower where he has his private studios, of course he represents the authority of the Winter Court now in the Twin Cities, and being part mortal allows him to skirt around certain rules.


The Foshay Tower, is a skyscraper in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Modeled after the Washington Monument, the building was completed in 1929, months before the stock market crash in October of that year. It has 32 floors and stands 447 feet (136 m) high, plus an antenna mast that extends the total height of the structure to 607 feet (185 m). The building, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, is an example of Art Deco architecture.

It is now a hotel and also boasts the business offices of Carlos Ortega’s banking cartel. He currently resides in the palatial Suite on the 27th and 28th. Many of the banks customers and members visit, especially those from its South American branch.

The IDS Tower has a arial view above that of the Foshay Building.
