We love having SisterBoss studios at the Lumber Exchange Building and our guests love it too! Most of our clients are skyway connected advertising and marketing agencies so the convenience factor for them is key. They love the history and beauty of the building, as well as our custom-built space which has great views of old downtown, and the bright lights of Hennepin Avenue.

We love having our office in the Lumber Exchange building for so many reasons, but mainly, the Lumber Exchange adds to our appeal as an Employer of Choice and continues to help us hire and retain great talent. The downtown location, the abundance of the skyway systems, the close-by dining and entertainment and the various forms of transportation is attractive to current employees and candidates as well.

Beyond the sheer vintage awesomeness of the Lumber Exchange building as a bolstering factor to our company culture, the skyway connection, central location and easy access to parking and transit, helps our clients in the MSP advertising and marketing industry, navigate to us easily, plus the floors are concrete, which you don’t find in a lot of older buildings, this helps insulate sound, to make our product that much better!

The Lumber Exchange building truly is the perfect house for an event center! The 3rd floor has been renovated to 4 historically unique spaces that can be flexed to one, which allows us to cater to any size party. All the rooms have unique historic architectural attributes and sweeping downtown views. These aspects have helped us grow to a large event center that hosts all types of events from corporate meetings and parties for tenants to every size wedding, fundraising event and much more!
