An Office With a View. Of Stones.

U.S. Property has purchased the Five Willows building at 48th and Pioneers and rechristened it Stoneview Center. I’m glad to see the building get some love. For one thing it’s in my neighborhood so I wasn’t crazy about the building sitting empty. And for another, it’s a shame to see all the money put into that property go to waste.

The new concept for the building is interesting. For one thing, there’s office space (”Suite 100”) that includes an indoor walking track. That’s relatively unique. I could see some hip company leasing the space and using the track for r/c car races instead.

There’s also a decent sized restaurant space, complete with what appears to be some old tanning equipment. Perhaps that could be used for some kind of newfangled cooking technique.

All in all it looks like a good project, both for the building and the neighborhood. It’s a far cry from the old Food 4 Less that used to live there, that’s for sure.

Too bad they couldn’t (apparently) come to terms with Aspen for a health club. If they can lease it out piece by piece, it could end up better.

I could see a marketing or advertising firm who tries too hard to be hip with a name that makes no sense and who wants the cool “we have no rules” vibe looking at some of those office spots.

Yeah, I was all set for Aspen to move in just down the street from me. Oh well.

I really want that track for office chair races and other shenanigans. Think it’d make financial sense to rent the whole place for myself?
