New Kum & Go arriving at Airport and Circle

Printers-Park-Market-CenterAt the corner of Airport Road and Circle Drive, Printers Park Market Center will soon sport the city’s newest Kum & Go, as well as a trampoline park.

The 104,000-square-foot building now houses the Star Academy Charter School, Planet Fitness Health Club, and Liberty Dialysis, said Matt Craddock, principal with Craddock Commercial Real Estate. The Kum & Go will occupy one of three pad spaces outside the building.

The new Kum & Go store will offer nearly 5,000 square feet of retail space, said company spokeswoman Traci Rodemeyer.

In addition to gasoline, the Kum & Go convenience store will sell pizza, deli sandwiches and baked goods “made fresh in an on-site kitchen,” Rodemeyer said.

Construction is scheduled to begin in April, with completion estimated for August, she said.

Springs Trampoline Park is set to occupy 30,000 square feet of the Printers Park Market Center, Craddock said. That business has signed a lease and anticipates opening on March 1, he added.

The Trampoline park was represented by Todd Ogden of Hoff & Leigh, and Mark Useman of Sierra Real Estate is representing Kum & Go, Craddock said.

The property had been a Kmart and was obtained by Craddock in 2006 after being vacant 12 years. Under Craddock ownership, the building underwent significant renovation and reopened for occupancy in 2008, he said.

In addition, the Craddock division of Piedmont Financial announced this week it received a $5.3 million first mortgage on the Printers Park Market Center. The new mortgage placement is with Pueblo Bank & Trust, Craddock said.

The company’s previous lender, Colorado National Bank, was acquired by the FDIC, leaving the company “in limbo for quite a while,” Craddock said of CNB as well as another bank that held partial funding. “We were basically on a month-to-month loan.”

Piedmont Financial Inc. is a full-service mortgage banker with offices in Las Vegas and Colorado Springs.

With the trampoline business occupying nearly one-third of the building, the Printers Park Market Center has only 11,000 square feet available for rent, in addition to two pad sites, Craddock said.
