"Being in the business of beauty, the CornerStone Building was the perfect choice for our new location. The curvature of the building makes our space warm and inviting, and filled with natural light. Main Street Landing is truly the gateway to the waterfront of Lake Champlain and since moving here we've learned that it is not just a place, it's a community that exemplifies everything we strive for in life, both personally and professionally - good friends, great food and nature's best at our back door."

"For several years I've been working from my home office and was really starting to miss being around other professionals and the action of Burlington. I knew right when I walked in, that Union Station at One Main Street was going to be a perfect fit for me and my real estate appraisal business."

"Four Nine Design is a graphic and interactive design company. Being part of the waterfront is awe inspiring. The energy you receive from the changing aspects of the water and the views helps the creative juices flow. The location exemplifies what Four Nine Design stands for simplicity, accessibility, and a unique sense of identity."

"Birth Journeys offers services for pregnant families, so we wanted a location that felt safe, warm, and inviting. It was also a priority to find a space that was clean and healthy, especially for the mamss and the babies. Main Street Landing has been a good fit by being a green building complete with a revolving art show in the lobby. We're in the best location in the world...our clients are always enchanted by their visits to Union Station, they enjoy the Lake Champlain waterfront and the proximity to all the fun stuff that Burlington has to offer."

"In the 20 years since I started my graphic design business here, Main Street Landing has consistently improved our work environment and evolved into a force for change on the Waterfront. It's nice being part of a socially responsible neighborhood, feeling at home here, and being able to look out at the lake and mountains each day, while continuing to grow my photography and design business in classic Union Station."

"As a non-profit working in the realm of international peace and justice, Bridging the Divide has found a real home here. The socially and environmentally conscious community of businesses that occupy the offices along the waterfront align beautifully with our work. When our colleagues visit us from Lebanon, Iraq, Turkey, and beyond they are consistently impressed. Walking distance to our local providers, downtown, the waterfront area, and bike paths, as well as the impressive views of the lake and surrounding mountains make the location ideal."

"The CornerStone Building is an ideal location for BBA. What a wonderful site to inspire our mission of promoting the economic vitality of Burlington! Main Street Landing exemplifies the entrepreneurial spirit and community conscience that make Burlington one of the top ten US cities in which to work and live. And the CornerStone Building embodies that spirit, with its unique architecture, colorful art by local artists, comfortable office space, energy efficient systems and convenient parking. And to top it off, we are treated to beautiful views of the lake..."

"Life at Main Street Landing helps us achieve balance. At the CornerStone Building, with our majestic views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks, beauty abounds. What better place to operate a fiercely competitive, fast-paced, growing telecommunications company? A typical day at Caleidoscope involves selling, provisioning and implementing voice and data products and services that our customers depend on as their lifeblood. Caleidoscope takes that kind of trust personally! We appreciate the day-to-day affirmation that working and living in a beautiful place like the CornerStone Building at Main Street Landing is a great choice for our employees, our customers and our business bottom line."

"It may seem odd for an organization that manages a 300-mile public cross-country ski trail the length of Vermont to have an office on the Burlington's Waterfront, but ever since we opened an office in 1985, the Catamount Trail Association has called Main Street Landing home. Though we are miles from the Catamount Trail, seeing the constant buzz of recreational activity along the waterfront gives us a wonderful daily reminder of how important our work is in providing and conserving the unique winter recreational opportunity the Catamount Trail provides to cross-country ski and snowshoe enthusiasts."

"We chose our light-filled office at One Main Street because it's the perfect location for our association, as it's very accessible for our statewide members. And what's not to like about being on the waterfront? Union Station is a light- hearted, wonderful building that reflects well its owners' admirable and strong commitment to responsible sustainable redevelopment. As well, our attorney members, who are firmly committed to the rights and safety of all Vermonters, appreciate the owners' dedication to a positive social mission. What's more, the Main Street Landing team makes it very easy to spend the workday here."

"The Heartworks Schools pay special attention to providing beautiful classrooms with abundant natural light and spaces that help to create a 'home away from home' for young children. Our school at 102 Lake Street incorporates all these elements along with the Burlington waterfront as a backdrop to all our activities. Main Street Landing has helped us to provide a unique and special place for preschool children to join us in the journey of educating and nourishing the spirit of each child. We feel blessed to be in such a wonderful setting. Thank you Main Street Landing for all your support."

"Running a sunscreen company in Vermont is not normal. We wanted a location that was as unique as we are and we found it in Main Street Landing. Being located right on the bike path and on the waterfront gives us a daily reminder of all the people outside enjoying themselves and in need of our product. It also gives us visibility with the local outdoor crowd. We're always stoked when someone stops by and says "cool location." The only thing we can't do is surf out of our front door."

"In 1992 I came to Main Street Landing to work at a friend's small business while she went on vacation. In 1999, I bought Impact Resume and Business Services from her, and I knew that I wanted to stay here for a number of reasons, primarily the central location and close proximity to the waterfront, availability of parking for clients, and above all the friendly and supportive atmosphere between Main Street Landing staff and tenants."

"Actually, it was my friend who discovered One Main Street. We were looking for a great location for a project studio a place to record some songs. This later evolved into Low Tech Studio, a full scale recording studio. A lot of musicians have made a lot of good music here. I think they have all enjoyed the downtown location, and the fact they're in an old train station it has a great vibe for recording. Through the years, Main Street Landing has been friendly and flexible, and always ready to work with me on any issues that arose. It's one reason I'm still here. And, of course, being right on the waterfront has been a real pleasure."

"As soon as I walked into the Wing Building, I knew this was the place we wanted to be. I liked the artistic mix and energy of the building. The cultural values of sustainability and redevelopment are ones that we share, and in many ways are directly applicable (physically and spiritually) to our particular areas of architectural practice, which include retirement housing, health care and multifamily housing. We live and work in Vermont because of the quality of life here, and Main Street Landing exemplifies what that quality of life is all about."

"As we continue to work for promoting self-sufficiency and shared prosperity for all Vermonters, the Peace and Justice Center staff wanted to walk our talk by locating ourselves in a green building, with landlords that are socially conscious and responsible.

We are just so happy to have found a new home for the Center and for our Store."

Quiet and slightly off-the-beaten-path, the location offers easy access to numerous professional opportunities in the Burlington area, including the ability to interact with a diverse group of clients; many, a mere 5-10 minute walk from my door. The view from my window and the opportunity to re-center myself with a walk along the waterfront...icing on the cake!!"

And with Madera's Mexican Restaurant downstairs, what's better than a celebratory margarita after your real estate closing?"
