WICHITA — Laham Development has got your number.

The company is bringing a Sleep Number mattress store to the retail center where it has already announced a Vitamin Shoppe will open on the northeast corner of 21st and Rock Road.

Sleep Number is relocating its store from Towne East Square.

“Our plan was to improve the aesthetics and the activity at the intersection,” says Cathy Erickson, vice president of Laham Development, which is the developer of Bradley Fair on the southeast corner of the intersection.

“We obviously have quite a large interest in that intersection and want to make it better.”

The center is 6,200 square feet. Vitamin Shoppe will take about 3,000 square feet, and Sleep Number will take the rest. Shelden Architecture is the architect and Key Construction is the contractor.

Fairfield Inn and Suites coming to Maize

fairfieldWICHITA — Though there’s been no outward signs of progress, a Marriott-flag hotel is still coming to 37th and Maize.

“It’s definitely coming,” says owner Lindsay Olsen of Prairie Village. “Marriott has approved us for an 84-room Fairfield Inn and Suites.”

In November, Have You Heard? first reported a Marriott-flag hotel would be coming to the Wyn-Wood commercial development where Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, City Hall and the Maize Dialysis Center already are located and where Barn’rds has plans to locate.

But there have been no signs of it since.

“We are working on it,” Olsen says. “It’s just not stuff you see by looking at the lot.”

Olsen won’t share a timetable for development, but he says, “It’s a good brand for the Maize market.”
