Bostrom Group project underway

At the groundbreaking event recently were, front from left, are Ryan, Alanna, Jeanne and Doug Bostrom, Gail Thomas, Becky Paulson and Melissa Gadatus; back, William Sames, a fellow Prudential financial advisor who operates from Bostrom's current office. Long-term plans call for building two additional office buildings of similar size on the lot over the next three to five years.

Site work for a new 5,140 square foot single-story office building in Hudson's St. Croix Business Park East began on a small-scale Friday, Nov. 1, with the owners and employees turning a few spades of earth.

The structure will be owned by Evan Ray Properties LLC and will be partially occupied by Bostrom Financial Group, which currently operates from offices at 744 Ryan Drive -- a space shared with First National Community Bank and other professional services. General contractor for the project is Mayhoff Leverington, Excelsior, Minn., but sub-contractors will be from western Wisconsin and Frisbie Architects of River Falls designed the project, said Doug Bostrom.

About half the building will be available for lease upon its completion next spring.
