The new home — about 60,000 square feet on two floors of 808 Conagra Drive — allows for future growth of the Sherwood Foundation, the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation (named after Susie’s late mother) and the Buffett Early Childhood Fund. The collective team of about 60 employees is expected to relocate at year’s end.

In the meantime, architectural design and renovations will tailor the new space to the foundations’ needs, said CBRE/Mega President Bennett Ginsberg, who represented Susie Buffett in the search.


At a price tag of $3.65M

I guess it is a good thing that that building will be occupied. Was kind of hoping that this building and the northern most conagra building would be torn down so the street grid could be redone.

Wow, 60k sqft for a current staff of 60 people? That some huge plans for expansion. At this current staffing level they could build everyone a 1 bedroom apartment, never mind an office...

The early childhood development facility could include daycare and or lab space or treatment space for something like MMI's autism and feeding clinics. Those suck up serious space.

Stothert mentioned on the KIOS (NPR) Noon Forum today that ConAgra is still planning on developing the ConAgra Campus. She said that ConAgra does own all of the land down there now but there was some snags with the previous developer. She said ConAgra still intends to move forward with redevelopment and the plans call it to be an extension of the Old Market and a mixed use environment.
