U.S. Census Bureau preparing to move into Northwest Centre for 2010 census counting

WICHITA — With the 2010 census just around the corner, the U.S. Census Bureau is leasing space at Northwest Centre at 13th and Tyler in preparation to start counting Wichitans.

"They're taking about 6,500 square feet of the former J.P. Weigand west residential office space," says Brady Miller, who handled the deal for Occidental Management.

"That space has all been completely released now," he says.

Greg Fox of Realty World Alliance took the rest of the space.

The Census Bureau will move in sometime in August.

"We're excited to have them there," Miller says. "They're going to have about 50 employees, which we think is going to be great for the center."
