Buxton Kubik Dodd Creative signed a lease to occupy a new development the firm designed along the Medical Mile.
The Springfield architecture firm plans to relocate in December to the entire third floor of National Place, a development underway by real estate agent Mike Fusek, said company president Brian Kubik. Buxton Kubik Dodd also is the architect of record for the three-story office building at 3150 S. National Ave.
With the move from 1435 E. Bradford Parkway, Ste. 100, the 21-employee Buxton Kubik Dodd Creative will increase its square footage to 6,200 from 4,500.
“We did the building for one thing, and Mike Fusek is one of our really good clients,” Kubik said. “We’re growing still. We wanted to make the next step. It’s a little more high profile.”
Fusek recently told Springfield Business Journal half of the second floor also is leased, as well as a fourth of the development’s existing, separate smaller building. A law firm also is looking at half of a floor, he said, declining to name the other tenants.
“We don’t even have the roof on National Place yet and we’ve leased the third floor to Buxton Kubik Dodd Creative,” Fusek said. “It’s because of the location. There are 40,000 cars a day driving by your front door.”
Kubik declined to disclose lease terms with Fusek or with Bradford Parkway building owner Bob McBridge. He also declined to disclose company revenues.
