Parking is a new business along Commerce Street

WICHITA — When Pat Peppard announced she was closing her Loft at 420 in 2006, she thought she had a buyer for her 7,800-square-foot building at 420 S. Commerce.

The deal fell through. And though Peppard would still like to sell or lease the space, she doesn't mind having the accompanying 44-space parking lot, which is along Commerce, Waterman and St. Francis.

Peppard is opening Front Row Parking across from Entrance B to Intrust Bank Arena.

"Of course, I named it Front Row because it's right across from the arena," she says. "I think that's a catchy little name."

If the building sells, Peppard isn't sure if she'll sell the lot, too, but she's open to it.
