CEDAR RAPIDS — ImOn Communications will move its headquarters from its current downtown spot to a location across the river.

The Cedar Rapids-based internet and cable service provider said Tuesday it will move its main offices to the Peoples Bank building, 101 Third Ave. SW, in the city’s Kingston Village neighborhood.

The move is expected to start this fall and ImOn will occupy the third and fourth floors of the building.

ImOn currently occupies office space in the GreatAmerica Building on First Avenue SE in downtown Cedar Rapids.

“Downtown doesn’t stop at the river. Our employees enjoy working downtown, and with this move we can continue to offer them that experience while also contributing to the ongoing revitalization on the west side of the river in Kingston Village,” ImOn CEO Patrice Carroll said in a statement.

ImOn said it will move the about 70 employees downtown to the new office space.

The company also said it expects to hire 45 new employees during the next five years.

The move is expected to be complete in spring 2019.

Folience, The Gazette’s parent company, is an investor in ImOn.
