“We’re slowly filling it up with state leases,” says Craig Simon of Landmark Commercial Real Estate, who handled the lease.
“The most recent one that got signed and approved was the Kansas Corporation Commission,” Simon says.
The commission is taking 17,267 square feet on the second floor.
Currently, the commission is in the Finney State Office Building at 230 E. William.
In June, Have You Heard? reported that nine state agencies, including more than 700 employees, will leave the city-owned building when the state’s lease expires on Sept. 30, 2014.
“There’s one more,” Simon says of state agency leases, “and we’re waiting to get the lease signed.”
That likely will be in the next week or two, he says.
“And then the entire building will be full once that’s complete.”
