CRST Breaks Ground on New Headquarters
Updated: Thursday, July 24 2014, 07:46 AM CDT
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) – A Corridor trucking company is one step closer to having its new Cedar Rapids home.
On Wednesday, CRST International broke ground on its new headquarter building that will go next to the Alliant Tower in downtown Cedar Rapids.
Officials with CRST say they couldn’t be more excited to play a role in the future of Cedar Rapids’ downtown and that they also hope their new building can open the door for even more development in the area.
“We’re hoping that this building will not just be one building,” CRST Chairman, John Smith said. “But that other people realize that there is a demand for space down here and will see more development down here.”
The $37-million, eleven-story building will be the biggest project to come to downtown Cedar Rapids since the Great America building opened up in 1998.
