Construction is moving along at a new high-rise in downtown Minneapolis.

Work got underway for the Nic on Fifth project on Nicollet Mall last December. On Wednesday, crews held a “topping out” ceremony, putting the final steel beam in place on the 26-story high-rise.

The luxury apartments are the first to be built downtown in nearly three decades and are located on the corner of Nicollet Mall and South Fifth Street.

The apartments should be completed by the summer of 2014.
