Construction underway for Venture Commerce Center
By Christine Cubé
FAIRFIELD - Half of the 28 privately owned commercial properties under construction in the Green Valley Corporate Park - as part of the new Venture Commerce Center - already are in contract for sale.
The center is the first development project in Solano County for Marin County-based Venture Corp.
The developer builds privately owned commercial buildings for small companies. Its concept of commercial structures for businesses to own has met success throughout the state, Venture Corp. said, in a release.
Like other Venture Commerce Centers, the Fairfield properties allow businesses to own, rather than lease, their space. That allows business owners to take advantage of property appreciation and the tax benefits of owning real estate.
Venture Corp. president Robert Eves said each center serves business owners who want to “control their own destinies and are tired of making their landlords rich.”
“There are other factors beyond the economics, however, that make ownership enticing for small business owners and that is quality of life,” Eves said, in a release. “By owning a business closer to their homes, business owners cut down on their commute time and increase family time. The quality of life aspect is making these decisions that much easier for forward thinking business people.”
Typical buyers into this commercial condo-type structure include engineering and law firms, contractors and laboratories, technology enterprises and brokerage and service companies.
The building architecture is Class-A commercial office design, constructed of steel-reinforced raised concrete panels. Offices are fully carpeted and equipped with a panelized ceiling system with integrated lighting and heating and air conditioning systems.
In Fairfield, Venture Commerce Center includes four separate buildings, ranging in size from 1,441 square feet to 3,319 square feet. The facility will be ready for occupancy in February.

Goodwill re-opens Dixon retail store
DIXON - Goodwill Industries of the Greater East Bay is grandly re-opening its Dixon Goodwill store on Thursday.
