Equity Financial Center has a few new leases, including Rep. Mike Pompeo's future office and new Key Management offices

WICHITA — There are a few new leases to report at Equity Financial Center at Kellogg and Rock.

There's only about 3,000 square feet left to lease in the 100,000-square-foot building.

"That'll put us at 97 percent occupied," says Joe Verbeckmoes, who handles leasing for property owner Market Parking Inc.

The leases include:

– Rep. Mike Pompeo's future office.

The Wichita Republican's temporary office is in Rep. Todd Tiahrt's former space at 155 N. Market. As an incoming freshman representative, it was a requirement for Pompeo to locate in that space on a transitional basis.

The new Pompeo office, which will open sometime in March, will be in almost 3,000 square feet.

"It's a much more cost-effective space for us and the taxpayers," says Rachel Taylor, director of communications.

Helping the selection, she says, is the building's free parking and location at what she calls the crossroads of the Fourth Congressional District.

– Key Management, which handles multifamily residential and some commercial management, also is moving into the building near the end of March or the first part of April.
