A new office building is up and running in Virginia Beach
Atherton Construction & Development and Parker Burnell Real Estate celebrated the opening of Independence Professional Place with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday.
The $3.2 million,16,000-square-foot, two-story building is located at 1436 S. Independence Blvd., not far from the Town Center of Virginia Beach. Construction began on the building in May 2016 and was completed in February.
Burnell Real Estate Group brokered the fully leased building for the home offices of Atherton Construction & Development Inc., Parker Burnell Real Estate Group, The Foleck Center for Cosmetic & General Dentistry, Hamilton’s Realty, and VA Mortgage Corp. Nicholas Financial also leased space for one of its local franchises.
“We welcome the newest addition to the thriving area surrounding Town Center,” Virginia Beach Economic Development Director Warren Harris said in a statement.
“It is a strong statement of Virginia Beach’s development strength to build and open with 100 percent occupancy.”
Kerry Finley of Finley Design designed the building, and Brad Martin with American Engineering provided engineering services.
