As all eyes turn skyward to catch a glimpse of that jolly old man in the fur-trimmed red suit, we at Fremont Business Park think it’s time for a look back at 2010 and all that we have to be thankful for this year.
To be honest, 2010 didn’t start off very well. If you’ll recall, the dust and noise from Christy Street’s extensive $2 million makeover was a bit of a nuisance. And on the economic front, the financial markets started downhill about as fast as a sleigh slides off a snow-covered roof. Things didn’t look good.
But by the time the winter rains had ended, not only had the markets started back up again, but the all-encompassing renovation was also complete. Inside and out, Fremont Business Park was like new. New formal tiled entries. New hallways. New doors and signage for the individual suites. New smaller offices to accommodate businesses just starting out. Upgraded restrooms. New conference room. New fitness facility with showers. ADA upgrades. New roof on Building 42840 Christy St. New paint. New landscaping. Resurfaced parking lot. New monument signage. Whew!!
And as they say in that baseball movie, once it was built, they did come. And they kept coming. Several new tenants had already moved in before the official grand re-opening in April. And a steady stream of businesses have continued to make Christy Street their home ever since.
TEAM Christy Created a Connected Business Community
In May, the first meeting of TEAM Christy Street was held. TEAM Christy offers each business within Fremont Business Park the opportunity to make business connections with their neighbors and to network in ways that simply aren’t commonplace in typical business complexes. Members are even provided the opportunity to gain additional exposure for their businesses by contributing to this blog!
Over the past eight months, TEAM Christy participants have referred leads to one another and even done business together. And in the Fall, Sterling Lanier, a chairman with Vistage International – the world’s leading CEO organization – got involved with TEAM Christy to add leadership development activities to the value received at each meeting.
High-Speed Internet Service
In September, Fremont Business Park completed an upgrade to the building’s fiber optic infrastructure and began offering the area’s fastest dedicated Internet service – without the slowdowns that can occur when other services pass through a central office. And the monthly costs offer significant savings over most business plans!
Then in October, TEAM Christy members got to meet business people from Borelli Investment Company’s other Building Business Network teams – TEAM Club Auto Sport and TEAM Junction. Members of the three TEAMS gathered and shared experiences at a special mixer before the inaugural concert in the Club Auto Sport Music Series.
And now, 50 blogs and 15,000 words later, here we are in the holiday season. What a year! From all of us at Borelli Investment Company and Fremont Business Park, we wish you and yours the happiest holiday season and a healthy and prosperous 2011!
