CNA Moves Into New Building

May 30, 2012, 10:23 PM by Kelly Bartnick

CNA Moves Into New Building
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The latest addition to Sioux Falls' skyline is finished ahead of schedule.

CNA Surety moved into its new offices on the East Bank of the Big Sioux River this week. Developer Craig Lloyd says it’s a month earlier than expected, despite construction set backs.

“We have our own exercise facility, which is right next door available to all the people in the building,” Lloyd said. “Of course you've got the great bike paths.”

Apart from the great downtown views, there's also a community conference room that Lloyd Companies want small and non-profit businesses to benefit from. It sits on phase two of the Sioux Falls River Greenway, similar to Cherapa Place, which was the last major office and commercial space to be built on the Big Sioux.

“How Cherapa has changed the east side. It allowed their building to get built, our building to get built, hotel to kick off in July. It's exciting to see what the East Bank is going to come to be,” Lloyd said.

“Eighth and Railroad gets a lot of traffic, and I think being across the street will help us a lot and we're a good addition to the neighborhood,” said Steve Hildebrand who has leased space for a new coffee chop in the CNA building.

The early corporate move gave Hildebrand's new coffee shop, Josiah's, a chance for a "soft" opening. Hildebrand's doors open for real Friday morning.

“It's been interesting, challenging, and nerve-wracking. But it's been fun to do something really creative,” Hildebrand said.

“We wanted to get a restaurant here, something happening with the building to get the excitement of the people that work here and want to visit here,” said Lloyd.

Eventually more than 500 people could fill the building. Lloyd's corporate offices are moving in, and a law firm, investment company, and advertising company have also leased space. Lloyd says the building will be 98 percent leased by August

“This is going to be a place to go have an experience,” he said. “I don't know of many communities that are going to have a downtown riverfront as nice as Sioux Falls.”

Lloyd Companies has other major downtown projects in the works. They've broken ground on a new housing complex in the Uptown at the fall area and part of his East Bank complex also includes a hotel set to go up this summer.
