WICHITA — A new lease at the Landmark Commercial Real Estate building at First and Emporia will bring the building to 100 percent occupancy.
Landmark has half of the Old Town space, which the company renovated and moved into in 2007.
A new group of independent lawyers are forming an entity — not a law firm — to share the remaining 4,000 square feet on the building's first floor.
The new group is Cleary, Wagle, Soderberg and West, which includes Mike Cleary, Karen Barry West, Jennifer Wagle, Ann Gottberg Soderberg and Stephen Turley.
Floodman, Wagle and West has been sharing space at 323 N. Market for more than four years.
With the new entity, West says the group needs more room. She says there are a lot of things they like about the Landmark building, including that the group will be easily accessible on the first floor with plenty of parking not far from courthouses.
"We need to be able to get in the car and go, and so that was very appealing," West says.
