Acorn Corner Grand Opening Offers Tours of Apartments

Public gets first look at upper floors of restored downtown landmark

Ron Burbick spent Monday evening thanking the many people who contributed to the restoration of Acorn Corner with a private party in anchor-tenant Buffalo Wild Wings mezzanine.

The unofficial grand opening gave the invite-only crowd a chance to tour the upper floors of the building, which is now home to the Kent Area Chamber of Commerce and Marathon Financial Services on the third floor with apartments on floors four and five.

The Acorn Alley developer credited numerous partners and contributors to the restoration of the old Kent hotel, which is abuzz again at the corner of South DePeyster and East Main streets downtown.

Burbick thanked private Kent residents who invested in the project, city officials for speeding the sale and permit processes, the project architect and many others.

"We couldn't have done this without everybody chipping in," Burbick said.

Buffalo Wild Wings opened for business last month. Click here for a photo gallery tour of the building.
