WICHITA — The former Automobilia space at the northeast corner of First and Emporia is getting a new life along with some new tenants.
"It's kind of something we've been looking at for a long time because we've got a vested interest in our property across the street," says Brad Saville, president and CEO of Landmark Commercial Real Estate.
The Landmark office is across the street on the southeast corner. Saville and two others formed 2point LLC to redevelop the former Automobilia space. They're calling it Firestone Place.
Saville thinks the original occupant of the building was a Firestone tire dealership. He's still trying to learn more about it.
"I'm really interested in the history of it."
SBA Construction and Innovative Construction Service are remodeling the 8,271-square-foot space.
There's room for three tenants in the building. Landmark's Craig Simon and Scott Harper are handling the deals. It looks like there are already three tenants for the space.
One, Susie and Jim Smith's Twotrees Technologies, is signed.
