A dental practice has leased 2,400 square feet of retail space in Springfield, in a newly announced transaction by Larken Associates.
In a news release, the real estate firm said Dental Care Springfield is slated to open this month at its Echo Plaza Shopping Center. The space at 901 Mountain Ave. will provide the practice with a heavily trafficked location with frontage along Route 22, where it will join a host of other tenants at the 66,567-square-foot property.
Shane Wierks of Jeffery Realty represented both parties in the deal.
“We have long understood that no matter what the broad macroeconomic forces facing the retail market are, location and adaptability will be timeless differentiators among properties that see consistent demand,” said Victor Kelly, executive vice president of Raider Realty, the in-house brokerage division of Larken Associates. “Echo Plaza is emblematic of the success of that approach as we have continued to see strong demand from tenants like Dental Care Springfield over the past several years of economic uncertainty.”
Larken noted that the property is also home to Echo Executive Plaza, a 41,000-square-foot office building that houses a mix of financial, insurance, medical and professional services companies.
“Dental Care Springfield is delighted to bring 30 years of combined clinical experience, modern technology such as TVs above the dental chair and old fashion customer service to the Springfield community,” said Dr. Jerome Simon, owner of Dental Care Springfield.
