Bowron building gets temporary tenant

The Bowron Building at 3rd and Main Sts. will soon be open again — at least temporarily.

National Renewable Solutions, developers of the proposed Expedition Wind Farm, have signed a contract with Marion Advancement Campaign to lease the building from May 15 to Aug. 15.

Patrick Pelstring, CEO of NRS, said the company’s intention is to use the building as a temporary office for the wind farm project.

NRS earlier reached a tentative agreement to purchase a building at 828 N. Roosevelt as a maintenance headquarters for its proposed wind farm not yet approved by county commissioners. Renting the Bowron building will provide office space before that purchase is finalized.

“They have to make their way through the county stuff first,” Marion economic development director Randy Collett said.
