A long-vacant parcel of land in Clovis will be getting several new leases on life over the next three years, with construction officially under way on a pair of buildings.
The land — stretching 2.3 acres on the corner of Herndon and Peach avenues in Clovis — was purchased in parcels by Marihart Properties between 2017 and 2019. According to John, James and Falina Marihart, the family business started construction on phase one in November, which they expect to complete in the summer. Once completed, 4,000 square feet of the 10,000-square-foot building will house the new headquarters for PC Solutions. PC Solutions was founded by John D. Marihart.
“We’ve come so far since literally starting the company in my garage to now employing the best IT professionals and actively scaling our products for growth,” John D. Marihart said.
The remaining part of the building will be available for lease.
Phase two, meanwhile, is expected to begin sometime between six months and a year from now. Plans call for its completion in 2021. That building will be 16,000 square feet. James Marihart will manage the day-to-day operations.
“As we’ve all seen, Clovis is booming and the future is bright for businesses in the city,” said James Marihart, managing partner. “As each one of our buildings go up, more and more jobs will be created.”
Phase three is expected for 2023, according to the Mariharts. It will house a restaurant similar to popular steakhouse 13 Prime Steak, which is also owned by John D. Marihart.
“It’ll serve the community in that area — breakfast, lunch and dinner, possibly,” Falina Marihart said. “So it’s still going to be quality food and everything, just a different price.”
Target Constructors, Inc., out of Madera, Ca., won the bid to complete the construction on the projects.
