Much of the Space Coast Business Realty Center on U.S. 1 already is open for business, but a planned grand opening ceremony for the all-in-one real estate services complex has been delayed until January.
The 15,000-square-foot custom luxury office facility at 5815 S. U.S. 1 in Rockledge is the new home of Ellingson Properties, Echelon Builders and Morgan Financial, a mortgage lending firm, said Greg Ellingson, owner/ broker of Ellingson Properties and Echelon Builders. More businesses will be added in the coming months, Ellingson said.
“We are serving clients already,” Ellingson said. “We’re getting settled in our building and everyone’s excited.”
Ellingson and Echelon moved into the new building in August and Morgan Financial followed in September. A grand opening ceremony was set for this month, but Hurricane Matthew disrupted those plans, Ellingson said.
“We’re going to wait until post-Christmas,” he said. “We’re talking about having it in January after bowl season and before the Super Bowl.”
Ellingson Properties occupies about 5,000 square feet of the complex, while Morgan and Echelon take up another 4,750 square feet and 3,000 square feet, respectively.
Another 1,000 square feet is for office space for new Ellingson agents, and 2,000 square feet is reserved for complementary, real estate-related businesses, Ellingson said.
“We’ll have partners like title insurance and home insurance,” he said. “We expect to finish all that up by March or April and let all those guys move in about that time.”
The goal is to create a one-stop real estate center that mirrors Ellingson Properties’ level of commitment to service to its clients, Ellingson said. “We’re putting all these things in place so we all benefit from the location, the foot traffic and the acknowledgement of a one-stop shop,” he said.
Response to the state-of-the-art facility has been great, Ellingson said. “Some 36 different people have stopped in here and said, ‘Hey, I’m repainting my house, I’m building a new house, and I really like your paint color or that color of the rock,’” he said of the center, which was designed and constructed by Echelon Builders. “They want to know what the color of that awning is, the material, etc.”
The community is welcome to use the facility for nonprofit meetings and small events, Ellingson added.
