It’s going to be a big spring for one of the largest downtown Sioux Falls projects.

Several condo owners and businesses have moved into Washington Square, with more to come in the next few weeks.

From standing desks to unique architecture, L.G. Everist’s new location isn’t your typical office. The bosses don’t have the only window seats. Instead, you’ll find an open layout where employees share the light.

“We’re not boxed into cubicles like we used to be. It has a more open atmosphere,” Rob Everist said.

L.G. Everist is one of three businesses that have already moved into Washington Square. A fourth plans to join them soon.

“What was a dead-end street has come alive. It’s so fun to be a part of that,” Washington Square Partner Chris Houwman said.

In addition to businesses, condo owners have also started moving in at Washington Square.

“They’re baby boomers who have so much energy,” Houwman said.

Houwman says only a handful of condos are still for sale. Parlour Ice Cream House also plans to open in May, but the owners are still looking for a restaurant-bar. Houwman has had interest but has actually turned down a few proposals.

“We want them to be successful. We want to make sure their brand complements our brand,” Houwman said.

Meanwhile, Everist hopes his company’s new office will help with recruiting and keeping workers.

“It’s really important to have a work environment that’s inviting and fun to come to,” Everist said.

A fun environment during a time of low unemployment.

The three other businesses that have offices at Washington Square are Maroon Private Trust, Vanguard Hospitality, and Electric Pulp.
