SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — A developing business is aiming to rent spaces to up-and-coming entrepreneurs.
It’s called “Prosper Park,” and it’s located on 28th Street in Springfield.
Prosper Park is owned by Developer Leonard Tarantola.
The City of Springfield says Tarantola wants to help smaller businesses get started.
Mark Metzger, a senior planner with the city, says Tarantola bought the land and is developing the business with a unique vision.
“He has a vision for creating small artisan spaces and flexible industrial space for small entrepreneurs to get a start, and that particular facility will house probably, eventually, 35 to 50 small warehouse sites.”
Metzger says some of those spaces are finished and currently have tenants.
