Lobby space available at Brittany Center

WICHITA — Now that Hobby Lobby has moved into its new space at the Regency Lakes shopping center at 21st and Greenwich, there’s a renewed push to find a tenant to take its former space.

Scott Harper of Landmark Commercial Real Estate has taken over trying to lease the 55,000-square-foot space that Hobby Lobby occupied at Brittany Center at 21st and Woodlawn.

“The ownership seems to be pretty open-minded to different scenarios there,” Harper says.

There’s some extra space adjacent to the building, which means the center could accommodate a tenant needing up to 75,000 square feet.

“The good news is there’s not really too many of those spaces left any longer,” Harper says of Wichita in general.

That compares to a few years ago when “there was quite a bit of availability in that size range.”

Harper says the owners are willing to divide the space as well. That includes making the north end of the building, which currently is all brick, into a storefront that faces 21st Street. He says there’s room for several smaller shops there.

“That’s even something they’re open to.”
