The future of the former GoDaddy headquarters in Hiawatha is officially up in the air as the building now has new owners.

The Cedar Rapids Gazette reports that the former GoDaddy building in Hiawatha was sold to local developers Hiawatha Economic Development Corp. The sale was made official on Monday.

The more than 73,000-square-foot building was built in 1991 and then remodeled in 2017, according to the Gazette. As of 2020, it housed more than 400 GoDaddy employees. The company then decided to downsize and move to a smaller office space due to the pandemic. GoDaddy moved into the Armstrong Centre on Third Ave. in downtown Cedar Rapids.

The Gazette reports that the GoDaddy building was listed for sale at $8.43 million in 2022. That fell to $7.025 million in October of 2023. The sale price was not released.

Liz Mathis, HEDCO coordinator told the Gazette that "we are pleased to see local developers invest in this building and are ready to help bring energy and vitality to an area that is so important to Hiawatha’s core." Mathis noted that the building was vacant and no longer occupied by GoDaddy employees.
