“We’re going to be 100 percent occupied there,” says president Chad Stafford. “We’re pumped.”
Salon partners Tammy Ho and David Lee are moving their business from 1,500 square feet at 3236 N. Rock to 2,200 square feet at Northrock. Ho says they wanted more visibility for the 10-year-old salon.
Stafford says there’s also a letter of intent for the company’s Northrock offices. If the lease happens, that center also would be fully occupied. Look for more news on that soon.
Occidental began the office project in December 2007 and moved its headquarters there in August 2008.
The retail portion broke ground in early 2009.
“We’re excited that in what’s been a challenging market here over the last year and a half that we’re able to get a couple of assets up to 100 percent occupancy,” Stafford says.
He says a lot of those deals have happened thanks to networking within the real estate community and through groups like chamber committees.
“It shows that doing some grassroots marketing has paid off for us really well.”
