RadNet’s arrival shored up a hole left by longtime tenant Coca-Cola, which left in August, said Gerry Chauvin, Eastgate’s development consultant.
“It’s been encouraging to see Eastgate’s redevelopment and the success it has had in transforming into office space,” Justin McLaughlin, executive vice president and COO at the Chamber, said in a statement.
“Eastgate’s success reflects our region’s growth during the last decade, and we’re grateful Eastgate is filling the need for office space, especially in one of the fastest-growing areas of Tulsa.”
Headed by principals Bernard Bertram and Ben Schlossberg, Shelbourne owns and manages 8 million square feet of commercial real estate that represents more than $1 billion in assets. Eastgate is the company’s westernmost and largest property (by square footage).
“We’re pitching a lot,” Chauvin said. “It seems like Tulsa is getting more and more notoriety, and as the airport continues to try to enhance its direct flights, that is the absolute key to economic development here.”
Shelbourne has invested more than $6 million into Eastgate, which has 24 tenants and is about 85% occupied.
“They are very committed to this project,” Chauvin said of Shelbourne’s leaders. “They are very employee-focused, tenant-focused. They are first-class people.”
