Some of the last remnants of the Star Tribune staff will move this weekend from the newspaper's old headquarters on Portland Avenue in Minneapolis.

Two-thirds of the company's 600 employees from different departments have already moved to the new location at the Capella Tower complex in downtown Minneapolis, according to reporter Kristen Painter. The 250-person newsroom will make the move over the weekend.

The newspaper's nearly 100-year-old building will be demolished late in the summer to make way for a 4.2-acre park that will lead to the new Vikings stadium.
