SPEARFISH — Another 10,000 square feet of office space will soon be available in the Atlas Building in the Spearfish Industrial Park.
The Spearfish City Council recently voted to authorize the completion of the new section. With the additional space, half of the 40,000 square foot building’s interior will be finished. Mass Markets, a customer service firm, currently leases 10,000 square feet.
The building was constructed in the wake of the 2013 Winter Storm Atlas, which destroyed the building’s predecessor. Economic development and city officials named the building for the storm.
In 2014, Mass Markets signed a seven-year lease for its space, which allowed the city to proceed with construction. The building’s scope was expanded to allow for future tenants.
Kory Menken, Spearfish Economic Development Corp. executive director, told the Black Hills Pioneer that the space to be finished off in the building is designed for traditional office use.
“Our goal was to keep the floor plan as flexible and universal as possible so that it could be leased by either a single end-user or by several individual tenants,” he said.
SEDC is currently in contact with a handful of potential future tenants. Officials have also discussed turning part of the space into a business incubator, where entrepreneurs could launch new ventures.
“This build-out will make the available space much more marketable and appealing to companies looking to expand or relocate,” Menken said. "In today’s fast-paced and ever-changing business environment, companies need to move quickly when making a site selection decision.”
