The Andreson Building is presently undergoing a renovation and renewal program into The Enterprise Building. The building will have 6 floors of rent-able space and will be home to a shopping and food court center (E Street Plaza, at The Enterprise Building TBA). The offices and corridors and general decor of the 1930's era are being taken into consideration to keep the essence and soul of the building with a new art deco and modern style interior. While the area around the Enterprise Building has undergone a complete change, this fine old gentlemen office building will continue to play its original role as a quality business and office facility at the focal center of the community; a fitting monument to the Andreson family for their century of service to our community.
