The Business Journal is reporting that marketing firm Group 360 is looking to consolidate its facilities – and its 275 employees – in either downtown or Lafayette Square.
Whichever option the firm chooses, 175 of those employees will be moving to the city from west county, which is great news for the city. Group 360 should be commended for its commitment to being part of the solution, as opposed to part of the problem.
Obviously, my vote is for downtown, which would help enhance downtown’s standing as the region’s premier location for creative professionals. The presence of creative businesses can help attract other similar firms to an area. If Group 360 were to choose to consolidate in say, Downtown West or Cupples Station, it could potentially have a snowball effect.
The firm is looking for 75,000 sf. I can't wait to hear what they choose...
