Chad Rupp hasn’t finalized the formal marketing materials for the office space in Sparkman Wharf, but there’s already so much interest in the property that he wishes he had “double” the 180,000 square feet to lease.
“I’ve had tremendous interest, even though we’re doing soft marketing at this point,” said Rupp, managing director of office and industrial services at Franklin Street.
Rupp is overseeing the office leasing at Sparkman Wharf — known previously as Channelside Bay Plaza — for Strategic Property Partners. SPP on Thursday unveiled redevelopment plans for the property that include not only office space but also 65,000 square feet of retail space, a dining garden and a biergarten.
