The Waterfront’s new addition at the northwest corner of 13th and Webb, where Whole Foods Market opens Sept. 3, continues to develop.
The SpaRenity Nails & Organics sign is now up.
That’s Kevin Tuan and his family’s spa, which Have You Heard? this spring reported was in the works.
The first SpaRenity opened in March at 3750 N. Woodlawn.
“We’re very successful,” Tuan says. “That’s why we decided to open up a second one on the east side.”
SpaRenity offers organic products for manicures, pedicures, facials, skin care and massage.
Tuan says that includes “truly organic nail polish,” and he says customers have taken to it all.
“They’re loving it.”
Like the spa on Woodlawn, the Waterfront one will feature custom pedicure benches Tuan had made in Houston. He says he thinks Wichitans will be surprised how different they are from traditional pedicure chairs.
The first SpaRenity is fairly small at just over 1,000 square feet.
The Waterfront spa will be 2,400 square feet and will be able to serve 20 to 30 people at a time.
Don Piros of Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the deal.
Tuan and his family have four other salons that aren’t the SpaRenity concept.
“For right now, we’re not going to change them,” he says.
Another SpaRenity should be coming, though.
“I’m working … to open another one on the west side,” Tuan says.
He says the SpaRenity at the Waterfront should be ready in October.
“Right now we are moving really quick.”
