The dominoes have begun to fall at Wieland Block.
After a year with only one, small tenant, the 100,000-square-foot commercial and residential complex on East Superior Street could have up to four businesses move in this spring.
The businesses joining Justin Paul Salon & Spa could be: the offices and counseling services for the Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment; offices for the McCarthy & Barnes Law Firm; and an office for an undisclosed business from the Twin Cities area, said Rob Link of A&L Properties.
The relocation of St. Luke’s P.S. Rudie Medical Clinic to Wieland Block was reported in September. The clinic will move into about 12,000 square feet later this spring.
An official with the Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment declined to comment on the move, but Link said they will probably take about 12,000 square feet. McCarthy & Barnes will use about 3,000. Details about the Twin Cities area business were not disclosed because the lease is still pending, Link said.
When Wieland Block has these tenants move in, the complex will be near 50 percent occupancy for its commercial space. There will be 35,000 square feet accounted for and 40,000 still available.
“We are well on our way,” said Link, whose business owns the $25 million refurbished complex.
Models for the 25,000 square feet in residential and residential/office condos will be available by mid-February, Link said.
