Franklin Office Center Grand Re-Opening a Success!

Franklin Ribbon Cutting

Inventure Properties with Boser Construction held a Grand Re-Opening at its property Franklin Office Center in Sauk Rapids on Thursday, June 30th. Tenants of the property co-hosted the event as well and include Wilcox Family Dentistry, Absolute Outdoor and Klimek & Kasella, Ltd. The businesses were thrilled to host Chamber Business After Hours as part of the Sauk Rapids Chamber and were delighted with the turn-out!


The event was held to celebrate the completion of Phase I of the project by Inventure with renovations being completed for the 1200 series building. The property consists of two buildings – the 1200 Series Building having just finished its renovations and still with one space available for lease and the 1139 Building that will be demolished and completely reconstructed as Phase II offering an additional 13-15,000 square feet of build to suit, lease back space. A ceremonial ribbon cutting also took place at the event with four different ribbons:

Phase I included office and warehouse expansion to accommodate the growing business Absolute Outdoor has experienced in its 1209 space. Additionally, Wilcox Family Dentistry has moved from its original space in the 1139 building to the 1201 space in the newly renovated building. Wilcox’s new space was completely designed and constructed to their needs offering a modern and elegant new office for continuing to serve their clients to their high standards. They will be officially opening their doors in the new space on Monday, July 11th. Klimek & Kasella, Ltd. have remained in their currently leased space in the 1139 building and we are happy to keep them as great tenants.
