SmartBase Office Relocation: We’re Moving to North Loop!
Over the last 6 months, we’ve been focused on what we want the future to look like for SmartBase.
We created a ‘Big Data’ offering that we’re calling Analytic Platform Solutions (APS). Adding this expertise to the SmartBase portfolio will be crucial for our customers in the next few years. The amount of data being created by your customers and your company is growing exponentially – We want you to be able to actually USE it!
With more great offerings came the need for additional talented people to execute these services for clients like you. So we hired the best and now we are feeling a little bit squished in our current office space.
The new space
Our new office search started in St. Louis Park, Northeast Minneapolis and the North Loop. We narrowed it down to several options and then let every employee vote on where they’d like to work. In the end, the majority chose North Loop and we’re very excited to be moving!
The new office is located in the Internet Exchange Building at 411 Washington Ave N. It was built in 1913 and the first tenant was the Studebaker Brothers manufacturing company. They used this building to assemble horse-drawn buggies and used the railroad behind the building to ship them all over the upper Midwest. Our office is located on the backside of the building giving us a view over the railroad tracks.
The new office will provide the following things:
– Room to grow as we invest in talent
– An open, collaborative space for our teams to work better together
– LOTS of natural light
– Put SmartBase in the heart of Minneapolis [and near trendy new restaurants – great for bringing clients out to lunch!]
The office is currently under construction but here are a few pictures mid-renovation to give you an idea:
We’ll be moving to the new office over the last weekend in June so there will be little to no interruption of our business. We will be up and running bright and early on Monday June 29th.
All of our phone numbers, main office and individual, will be changing. We will communicate the new phone numbers and individual contact information closer to the move date. As always, we will be available by cell phone or email during the move. UPDATE: Our new main number is 612.767.9940.
New Contact Info:
411 Washington Ave N Suite 115
Minneapolis MN 55401
