Two new businesses have leased space at the Round, and another tenant of the housing and retail development expanded its offices, said Todd Gooding, president of development ScanlanKemperBard.
Planet Thai, which took over the former Typhoon restaurant space at 12600 S.W. Crescent Way, opened its doors today.
And Discogs, an online music store and database, will move into a 6,500-square-foot space at 4145 S.W. Watson Ave., which also houses 24 Hour Fitness. The company should relocate in the next 60 days, Gooding said. Software company Workday recently expanded its space on Watson Avenue from 2,500 square feet to 5,000 square feet, he said.
SKB purchased most of the buildings at the long-stagnant Round in April. The city of Beaverton bought the South Office Building at 12725 S.W. Millikan Way.
Beaverton’s City Council voted Tuesday to move the city government to the South Office Building. Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle said he hopes to complete the move by September. The company was also approved by the Beaverton Planning Commission this month to improve and add parking lots at the Round, Gooding said.
“We’re very pleased with how things are going out there and excited to see this thing through,” he said.
