Great Way to Attract Talent

The top reason we hear for companies thinking about moving out of the suburbs or being committed to staying downtown is that a unique office space in the heart of our historic, navigable, amenities-rich city helps them attract and retain talented employees.

Help Build Your Brand and Culture

Downtown Fargo is a quirky, lively, creative space that is full of culture and history. Naturally, these features are magnets for those who seek interaction and discovery. Having a downtown office space links your company’s brand to all that is great about the heart of our city.

Find Lots of Places to Mingle with Colleagues

Walking the streets of Downtown Fargo is the only time that you’ll run into your friends and colleagues on the sidewalk, which can only mean the best things for business. Neighbors support neighbors, and there are countless places to meet for collaboration, brainstorming, change-the-world conversations, and opportunities to simply run into people who inspire you or take you in a new direction. Plus, it’s healthy for employees to interact with people from outside of their company every once in a while!

Be Where the Action Is

You can be close to clients and customers from anywhere downtown. So close, in fact, that you can walk to them if you choose. It’s also the most unique and intriguing neighborhood to show off to potential customers. You’re near banks, a hospital, city services like the post office and library, and of course local businesses, restaurants, bars, and entertainment.

Accommodate All of Your Employees

R.D. Offutt Company will be consolidating office employees from multiple locations into its new space in Block 9, and they see it as a team-building and culture-building opportunity. Just like R.D. Offutt Company, there could be an untapped market of companies that are inefficiently spread out throughout town that could benefit from centralizing operations in Downtown Fargo.

Use What Exists Instead of Building New

This is a large part of why Kilbourne Group exists. The math proves that it’s good for all taxpayers when we fully utilize and maintain the infrastructure that already exists before building new. When a company invests in their downtown, they’re using their purchasing power in a way that strengthens the city. Many business’ cite corporate social responsibility as non-negotiable in their ability to attract a new generation of team members.
