(Oroville) Ground has been broken and construction is underway on a new commercial complex at Mission Square in Oroville. The 11,000 square foot building is being constructed next to the Hofbrau Restaurant and the California Department of Motor Vehicles across from Feather River Tribal Health on 5th Avenue.
The project is the realization of a long time dream by long time residents and local businessmen Bill Jones, Ken Harlan and Jim Scurlock. Jones is the owner of Mt. Ida Mandarin Ranch, Harlan is the owner of Robert’s Drug Store and Scurlock owns Foster's Freeze on Oro Dam Blvd.
The three men have made great efforts hire locally and keep their investment dollars in Oroville. “We are excited at the positive economic growth we are seeing in our community, and we want to contribute toward the revitalization efforts” said Bill Jones, spokesperson for the ownership group. The three men have hired Oroville based Carey Construction to build the $1.2 million million-dollar project. Construction is expected to be completed by June, 2008.
The commercial condominium building is broken up into ten (10) units which are available for sale or lease. A major financial services firm will be the first business to announce it will be moving into the new building, taking two thousand (2,000) square feet on the end cap along 5thAvenue. The owners are also actively seeking a restaurant or a café to buy or lease the other high profile end cap unit on the other side of the complex. Space is also available for other professional services including retail and general business use.
