Cars for Sale November Project Update


For those of you who spent time on the west side of Sioux Falls you probably noticed this huge building going up behind me. For those of you who don’t call the west side home, I am located near Marion Road between 26th Street and 41st Street at the Lake Lorraine Development where CarsForSale.com is building their corporate headquarters carsforsale.com is one of Sioux Falls most successful startup companies led by founder and CEO Sean Coffman. Let’s go ahead and go inside and take a look at the building. This office space will be something completely unique to Sioux Falls it’s probably more like something you’d see in Silicon Valley at facebook or google. Michael, this has probably presented a few challenges for you; what are some of the more unique pieces that you had to work through on this building? Some of the most unique and fun challenges, we’re actually having a slide coming through the floor from second down the main here is going to be very cool over here we’re going to put golf simulators along with virtual green. We had to modify the floor the floor, which actually takes shape and changes the same as a putting course would. So employees can literally take a slide from second floor down the first instead of the stairs? Yeah it’ll be very cool it’s a tube slide will be clear poly in the tops of the see how the slide as you’re coming down. Cars for Sale really didn’t skimp on any of the details when it came to designing this building with Lloyd Companies and Van De Walle Architects. Tell me a little more about the building. The building’s actually 115,000 square feet. Another fun fact, we actually used 520 tons of steel to erect the building. That’s huge – right now we’re standing in the auditorium – how many people does this hold? 500 people in the auditorium down here. We keep talking about all the amazing features of this building tell me about one of your favorites. One my favorites actually right behind us we’ve got a third floor patio have a glass railing you look out over the whole Lake Lorraine development out here will be pretty awesome view. Yes – these views are incredible you can see it all over with the west side of the falls. Right now we’re just about complete with the exterior of the building were hoping to wrap that up yet this fall and move on to the interior where we’ll be finishing up next spring. Stay tuned because we’ll have lots of updates between now and then.
