We've Moved to St. Louis Park, Minnesota!
We’ve officially moved into our new St. Louis Park, Minnesota, headquarters at 3745 Louisiana Avenue South! The new building centralizes our Twin Cities area workforce with modern design, technology built for today’s hybrid workforce and ample room to grow in the years ahead.
Since we announced the purchase of our new corporate headquarters site in early 2021, we’ve been hard at work and are so excited about our new corporate home!
About Loffler’s New St. Louis Park Office
We chose our new St. Louis Park location for several reasons, but primarily because it allows many of our employees to work out of one facility, rather than be spread out over multiple buildings. The new space combines at least seven non-contiguous spaces under one roof.
The new office houses Loffler’s corporate offices, warehouse, the Loffler Document Services Center (LDSC) and has five professional docks to handle the comings and goings of equipment for installation and pickup. In addition to combining multiple distribution points, we can now handle inventory, device set up and support all out of one office.
The move will reduce a lot of running around for our employees. We can walk to our LDSC to pick up a printed project, see which clients are coming in to see new equipment, walk down the hall to pick up something in the warehouse or pitch in to help teams when they’re swamped with work at the end of the month, all in one building.
The new building is built on the 13-acre former Sam’s Club property on Louisiana Avenue and Highway 7. It has 82,353 square feet of office space, with 280 workspaces, as well as conference rooms and collaborative areas. The warehouse fills another 68,724 square feet of space.
Loffler purchased the property in January 2021. Phase 1, building out the warehouse space, started immediately and lasted 19 months. The warehouse had been functional for a little over a year by the time Phase 2 was completed and the corporate offices and the LDSC officially moved to St. Louis Park on August 3.
Our Bloomington location at 1101 East 78th Street will continue to house Loffler Holdings and its real estate business, as well as be a remote disaster recovery facility and parts depot for Loffler's technology business.
Amenities and Sustainability
When we learned The National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Green Lab found that it can take up to 80 years before the energy efficient features of a new building begin to make up for the damage their construction has caused, we decided not to demolish the 150,000 square foot building. Instead, we re-imagined it with sustainability in mind. In addition, we added blinds with sun sensors, lights with motion sensors and UV-protection film on windows to help reduce energy needs for temperature control.
The new building offers modern and vibrant design, while emphasizing the new ways people work together, both in-person and hybrid, with focus on collaborative areas, employee flexibility, access to outdoor space, public transportation and other amenities. The design of the new space mixes natural and industrial textures, like wood, marble, leather and metals.
The renovated space features the following amenities:
- Flexible workspaces for hybrid employees
- Collaboration spaces with comfortable living-room seating
- Stadium seating for large presentations
- Sports simulator
- Ample parking spaces
- Future site of the Southwest Light Rail Transit station
- Access to the Cedar Lake Trail bike and walking path
- Coffee bar
- Bike storage and repair station
- Exercise facility with weight and cardio equipment
- Group fitness and yoga space
- Wellness rooms
- Mother's room
- Micromarket with healthy, fresh eating options
- Outdoor patio with games and seating
- Picnic area
A Centralized Location with Clients in Mind
The whole Loffler team looks forward to seeing clients in-person for tours, demos and events at our new office.
For Loffler’s clients, this change means Loffler is modernizing the client experience. The Unified Network Operations Center (NOC) displays real-time dashboards that give the team a toolset to better collaborate and serve clients. The NOC brings all of Loffler’s support power together under one platform, with one unified support center for taking care of our IT, copy and print clients.
Our expansive warehouse enables us to receive, prep and ship products to clients quicker and more efficiently, so everyone wins.
Our new headquarters is our commitment to a positive, employee- and client-focused culture, which is the primary differentiator of a company.
A Workplace Designed for the Future
The workplace has changed, and we were able to renovate our new building from scratch to fit the needs of the new working world. This new space helps better connect hybrid employees when working remotely, as well as the numerous employees located in Loffler’s branch locations across multiple states.
We’ve created a space designed for hybrid work and for the next iteration of work, focused on the employee, collaboration and quality of life by giving employees more choice in how they can be most productive: where they work, how they work and who they work with. The architecture and furnishings of the building encourage impromptu brainstorming sessions and spaces to step away and find a solution while being able to collaborate to solve issues for a client.
For a technology company, technology is everything, and this new space allows us to do our best work and attract the best talent.
