A Yukon building will soon be looked at in a new ‘angle’

The building on the corner of Vandament Avenue and Garth Brooks Boulevard will be full of retail shops, offices and restaurants with a brand new look by August 2017.
The old John Holt Chevrolet building, 1000 Garth Brooks Blvd., was vacant since July 2009 before being leased to Canadian Valley Technology Center for classroom space while they rebuilt the El Reno campus after the May 31 tornado severely damaged or destroyed its buildings. Now that the El Reno campus is rebuilt and CV Tech is no longer using the building, Baker First Commercial Real Estate has new plans for the space.
Baker First is creating the Yukon Angle, Yukon’s newest mixed-use development. The Yukon Angle, named for the shape of the building, will be primarily used for new retail and restaurant space, but will also be available as offices.
“It looked like the highest and best use for the property,” Baker First President Rod Baker said. “It looked like an opportunity to be a signature development in Yukon.”
The idea for the Yukon Angle originally came about last fall, but will be becoming a reality in a few months.
“It’s one of the best corners in Yukon. The building has such a presence,” Sales Associate Bill Reid said.
The building will be getting a full exterior and interior remodel and will be “basically back to a new building.” Construction will begin within a couple of weeks.
Baker said Yukon residents should expect a new stylish design with tenants that are new to Yukon.
Close to 20 businesses have already shown interest in the Yukon Angle, but none of those businesses can be released until preleasing agreements have been signed.
Although most are new businesses to Yukon, some current Yukon businesses have shown interest in preleasing space at the Yukon Angle, Baker confirmed.
“We think with the improvements we’re making here and the businesses we’re drawing in, and with the future improvements being made to Frisco Road, the property has an excellent long-term future,” Baker said. “The City of Yukon has been great to deal with. We’ve got a lot of positive feedback about Yukon as a commercial market.”
Reid added that they’ve also received a lot of positive feedback about the Yukon Angle from Yukon residents.
Baker First is now leasing for August 2017 occupancy. The building will include retail spaces from 1200 square feet and up, a storm shelter for tenants’ use, well-lit parking lot, cameras and security systems in common areas, “excellent” signage opportunities and a special bonus offering for preleasing during construction.
They are also selling three pad sites and a flex space for around the Yukon Angle. Parcel A is one acre, Parcel B is 30,000 square feet, Parcel C is 35,000 square feet and the Flex Space is 11,550 square feet.
