TOPEKA (KSNT) – A real estate company is moving into downtown Topeka.
A Thursday morning’s Downtown Topeka, Inc annual meeting, a partner with KS Commercial said the real estate office will move into the second floor of 433 and 435 South Kansas Avenue.
The company will demolish a vacant building behind one of the addresses and convert it to parking.
Mike Morse says the office looked for second story office space.
“W want to maintain retail access for the front of the building, we think retail access is incredibly important for downtown nobody comes downtown to look at an office building. They don’t come down to walk past my office, they come downtown to window-shop. Retail is what brings people downtown.”
The space became available because the JE Dunn Construction offices moved from downtown Topeka.
They hope to open the new offices by May or June.
