What our tenants are saying
“As a startup nonprofit organization whose mission is to drive jobs and vitality into downtown Saint Paul, the opportunity for the Saint Paul Downtown Alliance to office out of The 428 as soon as it opened was a perfect fit. The attention to detail that went into preserving elements of the original Woolworth building, combined with the state of the art WELL and LEED certified updates speak both to downtown Saint Paul’s historic charm and its vibrant future. Nestled in the heart of the central business district its location, and breathtaking rooftop views, have made it ideal for hosting meetings and events, large or small. Especially as we look to bring new and returning businesses and workers back into downtown post-COVID-19 buildings like The 428, who prioritize health, wellbeing and cleanliness, will be some of our greatest assets and amenities.”
Joe SpencerPresident, Saint Paul Downtown Alliance

We very rarely have to request anything because you are always ahead of us. Our whole staff and I — Very much appreciate all your efforts!”

“We are truly excited to be tenants of the Ridgeview Office Center in Minnetonka. The vision Commercial Real Estate Services, Inc., had for this building was exactly in line with what we wanted and expected. Our office buildout and the subsequent buildings’ remodel exceeded our expectations. That, along with the location and ample parking, have been a welcomed benefit for our company, our team and most importantly our clients. Commercial Real Estate Services, Inc. has been a great partner in this process, thank you.”

“Our company needed to get out of the location that we were previously in. We had outgrown it, the features were outdated, and we wanted to offer our employees a fresh location to boost their morale. We were fortunate to find the location at 7777 Golden Triangle Drive and Commercial Real Estate Services, Inc., the company that manages it. Its fresh façade, great security, fantastic view with large windows, and welcoming atrium were all items that made us feel like it would become our new home. The management team has been very understanding and knowledgeable, particularly in the confusion and uncertainty of the pandemic. We hope to make this location our home for a long time to come!”

Our real estate team quickly knew we could form a long-term partnership with this commercial landlord.”
“I want to thank you and your staff for making this building such a warm and inviting place to walk into each day. Thanks for all you do!”
