WICHITA — A couple of tenants at Lakeridge, one of the strip centers behind QuikTrip at 21st and Ridge, now own the building.
“We were able to get it at a very reasonable price, and we felt like it was good business sense,” Feldman says.
Don Piros of Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the transaction.
He’ll also help lease the property.
“With Don’s help, it should probably happen pretty quickly,” Feldman says.
Piros has already done a deal for Regal Medical Supply to take 1,500 square feet at the center.
Regal owner Johnny Congleton, who does custom orthotics, diabetic shoes and braces, wanted to leave downtown for a couple of reasons.
Congleton says he wants more visibility “so it would be easier for the patients to find.”
Also, he says, “Downtown’s kind of complicated sometimes with the one-way streets.”
Parking is better, too, he says. At the west-side center, Congleton says, “They can pull basically up to the door.”
That leaves a 1,500-square-foot space and a 1,200-square-foot space left to lease at Lakeridge.
There’s also an 1,800-square-foot area that Arnold has decided to expand his business into as well.
