Building off Circle finally lands a tenant

T-Mobile has inked a five-year lease for a 2,200-square-foot space at the 2 N. Meridian St. building on the northwest corner of Washington and Meridian streets.

The store will be a so-called "playground" store, a new concept designed by some of the same people who worked on Apple’s distinctive stores, said Nick Wright, a broker in the local office of Midland Atlantic Properties who represented the landlord. Features include several tables with laptops, an "answers" desk and cushy chairs.

The prime space has been without a fulltime tenant since Flagstar Bank moved out in February 2008. Several restaurants, including McAlister’s and McDonald’s, and athletic retailer Foot Locker had considered the first floor of the building, which is owned by a group that includes local businessman John Goodman.

T-Mobile, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, hopes to open the store this summer.
