“I am so honored to be a part of this project,” Fisher said. “I’m so proud to see the way downtown Wichita has developed and embraced local pride. It truly has set a great example for businesses like us who are moving into the area.” The salon will open in 1,600 square feet in the same building where the Martin Pringle law firm and HomeGrown restaurant are locating.
With its current lease ending, the firm began the process of considering space options. "We started looking around to see what was available, but we had a desire to stay downtown," says Smith. "There just wasn't a whole lot available downtown when we started this process in 2015." The new development meets all of the firm's needs - innovative, fresh, downtown space. "It's fun and exciting to be a part of everything that's going on in downtown," Smith says.
HomeGrown will have 135 seats in 4,400 square feet and will open in late 2019 or early 2020 at the same time as Martin Pringle. “We can see where downtown’s going, and we can see how important this project is,” Rolph says. “It’s going to be a beautiful centerpiece to the downtown ecosystem here, and the community ought to be really excited about the asset that we’re getting in the new Naftzger Park.”
