ATHENS, OH. – Athens’ small businesses, high-tech firms, non-profits, and individuals toured the newly renovated Capstone Professional Office Park at the building’s Grand Opening on Monday evening. The former Tri-County Community Action Agency building on SR 550 and the former Albany Elementary School have been renovated into shared office suites able to accommodate up to a dozen businesses at each location.

“Overwhelmingly, we heard from folks that this was just an incredible deal and a great concept for Athens,” said Jeff Niese, Manager-Commercial Real Estate for Capstone Property Management, who manages both office parks. Although both office parks officially open January 1st, companies such as ICC Broadband, RHDD, Sound Health, and Athens-Meigs ESC have all ready secured leases.

“Everyone I talked to thought the space was impressive and well appointed, especially those whom remember the building from years back,” said Bob Prebe, Property Manager for Capstone Property Management LTD. “They were especially impressed by the zoned energy management system, the updated fixtures in the conference room, restrooms and reception areas, as well as the collaborative feel of the facility overall, where a business or a single individual can work in their own space, but feel like they are part of something larger.”

The former Tri-County building has been renamed the Capstone Professional Office Park while the Albany School building, which also functions as a community center for Albany Seniors and others, is now Center Albany.

A grand opening open house was held on Monday evening at the Capstone Professional Office Park at 11100 SR 550. The event, which offered a wine tasting courtesy of Shade Winery and local finger foods provided by Integration Acres Ltd and Sarah’s Sweets.
