Seven Arrows Elementary School Gains New Space

UDO Real Estate co-president Elliot Zorensky announced Aug. 12 that his new building at 15239 La Cruz will be leased to Seven Arrows Elementary School, which has been located across the street since 1999.

“We are truly looking forward to having them,” Zorensky said. “They are a community asset.”

Stephen Henning, a member of the Seven Arrows Board of Trustees, said “We are not expanding, we are just alleviating current space constraints.”

He said the private school is purposefully kept small with one grade per class (kindergarten through sixth grade). “We need just a little more elbow room and this space will serve as an educational support facility.”

Construction of the building (adjacent to the post office) is scheduled to be completed by the end of August. School starts on Sept. 8, and Henning is hopeful that the facility can be used as soon as possible.

“I think it’s exciting,” he said.

The former Blue Cross Pet Hospital building, dating back to 1955, will maintain its 4,025-sq.-ft. space. The lower floor will be about 3,000 sq. ft. and the second floor about 1,000.

Veterinarian Debbie Oliver purchased the building in 2000 and sold it to Zorensky and UDO co-president Randy Nonberg in 2014.

TAG (The Albert Group Architects) was hired for the renovation and asked to main- tain the mid-century architectural style.

The plans were approved by the Design Review Board on Feb. 11, 2015. Con- struction was delayed because it took longer than anticipated for the building design to be approved by city planning.

Seven Arrows signed a 10-year lease.
