An 18,000-square-foot OfficeMax is going to be the main anchor of the new North Maize Place at 21st and Maize Road.

That's the former Chadsworth Retail Village just north of Dillons and across from NewMarket Square.

Nick Esterline and Brad Saville of ES Development, a subsidiary of Landmark Commercial Real Estate Inc., are developing the property's 10 acres.

OfficeMax should be ready to open by October.

"There's a lot of businesses in that northwest part of town," Esterline says. "There's really kind of a hidden need for office supplies."

North Maize Place is also where the new Logan's Roadhouse will open in a freestanding building next month. Taco Bueno is already open next door.

There will be two strip centers at the development as well. There's the existing center where the former B.G. Bolton's was. That's where a new Emerson Biggin's is opening. Sprint also has a store there, which recently expanded by 1,000 square feet. Tokyo Steakhouse and a state tag office will remain in the center.

A new 30,000-square-foot strip center will be built where Countryside West Acres is. The bowling center will close in May and will be demolished shortly after.

Esterline says he has letters of intent for future regional and national tenants, but he's not announcing anything just yet.

Linda Hickam
of Landmark will handle leasing at the development, which is managed by Esterline and Saville's 1Point LLC.

Chad Glenn
and Stan Shelden of Shelden Architecture are the architects on the development. Key Construction is the contractor.

"We think we've got one of the top locations in northwest Wichita," Esterline says, "and the tenants that we're bringing in are kind of validating it for us."
