The developers of a northeast Wichita office park plan to begin construction on a third building March 1.
Gary Oborny and Chad Stafford of Occidental Management said the two-story, 46,000-square-foot building will be the largest of the three buildings at Offices at Cranbrook, a Class A office park at 10111 E. 21st St.
Oborny, Occidental’s chairman and CEO, said occupancy at the park’s two, 23,000-square-foot single story buildings is 71 percent. He said that occupancy level triggered the company’s plans to start construction on the third building.
“We’re very happy with the response from the business community” to the new park, he said.
As for tenants for the new building, “we’re working on them right now,” Oborny said.
The new building is the development’s largest because it will be two stories. He said the company eventually plans to build a fourth building, but at 10,000 square feet it will be Cranbrook’s smallest.
The third building will feature covered balconies on the second floor and covered patios for ground-level offices, both of which will look out on the development’s nearly 2-acre lake.
Spaces in the third building can be configured for as little as 4,000 square feet up and as large as 23,000 square feet, Stafford said. There also will be a partial basement for tenant storage, they said.
Spangenberg Phillips Tice is the architect. Selection of a general contractor is pending.
Stephanie Wiens is Occidental’s lead leasing agent on the building.
