WICHITA — The former Dillons at the southwest corner of Douglas and Meridian has sold, and a new occupant is likely to be in the building relatively soon.
Tom Schmeidler and a group of investors called DOME LLC — for Douglas and Meridian — closed on the building last week and are looking to lease it.
“There’s a couple of different entities that are very interested in it,” Schmeidler says.
One would take the entire 20,000-square-foot space, but Schmeidler says he’s opening to dividing the space between users.
The size of the building and its parking — there are about 120 spaces — made the purchase attractive, Schmeidler says.
“It’s a very stout building,” he says. “It’s a block building.”
It also has a basement.
“It’s in the core of Wichita, so if somebody needs to be close to downtown … this is close enough, plus this has the parking,” Schmeidler says. “There’s few buildings that are close to downtown that have the availability of that much parking.”
