About the Cedar Rapids Office: Located in the heart of Downtown Cedar Rapids and alongside the Cedar River, the city is full of life and also, uniquely, five seasons! Like all other cities in Iowa and beyond, we experience fall, winter, summer and spring, but our fifth season affords us the time and ability to enjoy all other seasons and thus life. We are often called The City of Five Seasons and you can find that this identity is deeply woven into the community of the City of Cedar Rapids. The view from our newly renovated office in the historic Armstrong Building is vast and wide, allowing us clear viewings of the city and its famous sunsets. Locally owned coffee shops, restaurants, theaters, stores and nightlife hubs are sprinkled everywhere, both near and far, offering lots to do at any time. We are accompanied by several Fortune 500 corporations in our area, including Collins Aerospace (formerly Rockwell Collins), Casey’s General Store and Principal Financial Group; it’s not all about big businesses here though. There are many exciting amenities that thrive here including the outdoor McGrath Amphitheater, Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, Orchestra Iowa, Newbo City Market, Kirkwood Culinary Kitchen, Veterans Memorial Stadium and The Alliant Energy PowerHouse. The streets and endless bike ways are buzzing with cyclists, especially during RAGBRAI (The Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa).
