CannonDesign is thrilled to share Square, Inc. has selected our firm to design its new St. Louis workplace. 

As reported by the St. Louis Post Dispatch, St. Louis Business Journal and other media, we will help Square renovate the historic St. Louis Post-Dispatch building as a cutting-edge workplace equipped to help the company expand its local workforce, recruit and retain top local talent, and fuel growth strategies. CannonDesign will provide multi-dimensional design services including architecture, interior design, engineering and lighting design. Trivers will lead the design and restoration of the building’s core and shell.

“The Post-Dispatch Building is a remarkable civic asset, and we hope this project brings even more new energy to St. Louis’ downtown core, and bolsters the city’s surging technology economy,” said Ken Crabiel, CannonDesign’s St. Louis Commercial Market Leader. “We’re proud to help Square create a dynamic workplace that will empower their people, culture and business long into the future.”

As one of the leading financial technology companies in the world, Square creates tools that empower people to shorten the distance between having an idea and making a living from it. Breakthrough products like the company’s reader and point-of-sale app, make it easier for companies of all sizes to start, run and grow their business.

This project builds on CannonDesign’s rich legacy of design work that nourishes and advances St. Louis. Through the renovation of the city’s Power House as our own workplace, to 4260 Cortex, the revitalization of the St. Louis Public Library’s Central Library and numerous other efforts, CannonDesign consistently demonstrates its unwavering commitment to St. Louis and those who call it home.
