Report: Davis commercial space vacancy climbs

By
May 13, 2010 |

Special to The Enterprise

Jim Gray and Nahz Anvary of Cassidy Turley/BT Commercial, a real estate brokerage firm in Sacramento, have begun publishing a Davis Office & Commercial Real Estate Report with some interesting tidbits.

The firm, the new manager of DavisÕ Marketplace shopping center, reported that the Davis commercial property vacancy rate is around 27 percent. ThatÕs 11 points higher than Sacramento regionÕs 16 percent.

ÒIn general, rents have softened, there are a number of landlord incentives, and construction of new product has slowed or stopped,Ó the report states. It attributes a bulk of DavisÕ problem to university budget cuts.

Other noteworthy items in the April 29 report:

– The California Center for Public Health Advocacy moved to new office space at the Interland Office Park in South Davis at 1947 Galileo Court. The nonprofit raises awareness about health and works to end childhood obesity. ItÕs online at http://www.publichealthadvocacy.org.

– JRP Historical Consulting purchased the nearly 7,000-square-foot office building at 2850 Spafford St., moving in on March 1. The public history consulting firm has 20 employees who include four partners, 10 historians, historic preservation specialists, graduate and undergrad research assistants, interns, a graphics and mapping technician, and administrative staffers. More at http://www.jrphistorical.com.

– DigiStream Investigations and EndoSomatic Systems Inc. are new tenants in the West Yost Associates Building in South Davis, at 2020 Research Park Drive. Digistream is a surveillance firm specializing in workersÕ compensation and liability fraud, online at http://www.digistream.com. EndoSomatic Systems is a medical devices firm, online at http://www.endosomatic.com.

– State Farm Insurance agent Dave Scheiber recently moved from 1340 E. Covell Blvd., Suite 103, to 4626 Second St., Suite 120, across from Target.

The Pilates Studio of Davis has a new name Ñ Lift Pilates Ñ along with a new logo and website.

To celebrate, itÕs hosting an open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, June 18, at its studio, 803 Second St., Suite C-1, in the Chen Building. There will be wine, cheese and demonstrations of a new class called Lift in Motion.

Owner and instructor Laura Shearer Cotler opened DavisÕ first Pilates studio in 2002. She says she was the first to bring the fitness method to Davis, offering classes in local health clubs. Pilates exercises use mats and resistance equipment to increase fitness, build core muscle strength and improve posture.

Kyana Taillon recently moved her photography studio from Humboldt County, where her studio was voted ÒBest on the North CoastÓ in 2008 by Times-Standard readers.

Taillon often shoots on location at historical sites for her wedding, portrait and commercial work. When Kyana Taillon saw WoodlandÕs Opera House, Victorian homes, and historic downtown she felt right at home. The new location for Kyana Taillon Photographer is 535 Main St. in Woodland.

ÒThereÕs something about vintage buildings thatÕs inspiring,Ó Taillon said. ÒWoodland has tons of character.Ó

Taillon moved to Davis in January with her husband, a UC Davis graduate student, and their two young sons Ñ one of whom is named Davis.

Taillon had an open house on April 25, and plans a studio grand opening in June. For more information, visit http://KyanaTaillon.com.
