Financial issues and lawsuits forced a Minneapolis-based construction company to close up shop.

The Start Tribune reported that Thor Construction is shutting down operations.

It was the largest minority-owned business in the state of Minnesota and it made headlines recently for opening a new facility in North Minneapolis.

Thor shared the space with Hennepin County and Target.

Thor had also been a big player in the Upper Harbor Terminal Project, but its role became unclear while facing financial strain.
