The Sarpy County Chamber of Commerce welcomed over 100 business professionals and elected officials in celebration of the chamber’s purchase of the office building located at 1243 Golden Gate Drive in Papillion.
Rennovations of this 1970s building took most of this past summer. The 4,880 square-foot building will allow the Sarpy Chamber to continue to add staff as membership grows. Extra space includes a second meeting room and offices that will allow local small businesses to set down roots for success.Occupants of the additional office space include Boots & Suites Unlimited, Pitch Edison Home Loans, and Schmit Law Firm, LLC.
Those businesses joined the Sarpy Chamber in celebrating the building’s ribbon cutting and open house on September 19th, as well as several special guest speakers. La Vista Mayor, Doug Kindig and Trenton Albers with the City of Papillion spoke to the commitment to the area the new building represents. Brian Mahlendorf with The Weitz Company shared his experience in overseeing the completion of this building project. Sarpy Chamber President, Karen Gibler, thanked Shadow Lake, the former location of the chamber’s office, for being a place of growth and Chairman of the Board, Eric Jones, spoke of the ways the new space will grow the chamber into the future. “This building is a legacy for the 2018 Sarpy Chamber membership,” said Gibler. “The success in programs and services offered have grown the membership which made all this possible.”
Renovations may have taken one summer, but plans for building ownership have been in the works for much longer. The Sarpy Chamber spent the last 5 years saving with the long-term plan of purchasing a building as the goal of chamber president, Karen Gibler and the board of directors.
Sarpy Chamber members are encouraged to stop by anytime to visit the new offices at Golden Gate Drive. Inquiries about leasing additional office space can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
