Liberty Crossing eyes tenants

A new retailer should take up residence in a long-vacant commercial building in Liberty Crossing this summer.

A new retailer should take up residence in a long-vacant commercial building in Liberty Crossing this summer.

Doug Grinde, a sales associate with Barclay Street Real Estate Ltd., said his firm is negotiating with two prospective tenants for the 9,400-square-foot building west of the premises where Ashley Furniture HomeStore, The Bedroom Shoppe, The Living Room and Kitchen and Patio operate.

Completed a year ago, the building has never been occupied. But Grinde said Barclay Street is at the offer stage with two groups interested in leasing.

“The scenario we’re dealing with right now would see a sole occupant take the whole building.”

He added that each of the two parties wants to use the space for retail sales, and to be operational by the summer.

Barclay Street is the leasing agent for Liberty Crossing General Partner Inc., which owns the five-acre parcel where the building and the nearby 55,000-square-foot structure where the existing furniture retailers are located.

Liberty Crossing General Partner bought the land from Avenir Diversified Income Trust, which developed both buildings.
