(Oroville) The dream has been realized for the developers of Mission Square in Oroville, who are celebrating the completion of a new 11,000 sq. ft. commercial complex. Several new businesses moving into the center are also celebrating, as are the many local contractors who helped make the project possible.
The beautiful Mediterranean style building was developed by long time residents and respected local businesspeople Bill Jones, Ken Harlan and Jim Scurlock, who made every effort possible to hire local builders and contractors. The $1.2 million dollar project was funded by Butte Community Bank and built by Mike Carey Construction. The exquisite rock work was created by Reynolds Masonry and the landscaping done by Sierra Landscaping.
Several businesses have already purchased or leased space in the new commercial condominium building. Edward Jones Investments headed by longtime Financial Advisor Kevin Bertis is taking the premier location at the main entrance through the signature Mission Square arch, where the ribbon cutting ceremony will be held. Table Mountain Physical Therapy will be located at the end cap along 5th Ave., and The Group Real Estate is opening up a new office next door.
The entire Mission Square Commercial Center is experiencing a surge of new business activity, and the original complex which was built in 1989 still thrives. Lake Oroville Mortgage recently moved into an original 1,000 sq. ft. unit and Chiropractor Dr. James Roettger is moving his entire operation into a 2,000 sq. ft. unit. Physical Therapist Valerie Nelson is expanding and will be taking an additional 1,000 sq. ft. for a total of 4,000 sq. ft.
