PIQUA — The Piqua Ruso Business Center continues to expand in the rejuvenated former Chevrolet Facility at 8620 N. County Road 25-A in Piqua. The Christian Life Center (CLC) will be occupying 13,800 square feet of the business center, which was purchased last year by local entrepreneurs Thom Baker and his sons, Adam and Mathew, collectively known as ATM Investment Group.
“The Ruso Business Center has had seven new tenants move into the facility in the last eight months,” stated Tim Echemann of Industrial Property Brokers in Sidney, who has assisted in brokering the deals in the center. “The Bakers have done just a tremendous job in rehabilitating the business center that continues to attract quality tenants like BobCat, WestCon, SRC Trucking, No Mercy CrossFit, Midwest Maintenance, and Charming Times and Vintage Treasures, along with its latest occupant, CLC.”
The Ruso Business Center continues to offer a wide variety of space options, including over 15,000 square feet of warehouse and office space, service facility and build to suit opportunities.
The center’s newest tenant, CLC, strives to share the message of God’s love and grace and to touch lives in the their communities. The campus is led by Pastor Matt Klimis and many volunteer leaders who assist him. Currently, they have volunteers who arrive early before the services to set up chairs and the equipment in the banquet room at the Miami Valley Centre Mall in Piqua.
The original CLC campus is located on Little York Road at I-70 and I-75 in Dayton. The new location will be the new home of their North Campus, which will help meet the demands of their growing congregation. This relocation will provide a permanent place with plenty of space for their live worship services on Sunday and other church related activities.
There are some additional improvements that must be completed before CLC occupies the building, but they are expect to be finished by the end of August, and CLC hopes to move its services there in September.
