Bath & Body Works will lease 2,500 square feet of a 23,500-square-foot strip center being built at 3140 Iowa, just north of Earl May Nursery & Garden Center at the northeast corner of 33rd and Iowa streets. Vanum Construction Inc., of Kansas City, Kan., is handling the $1.5 million job, which received its building permit earlier this month. The valuation is not yet included in the running total for Lawrence's building permits, which reached $84.1 million during the first half of 2001. Vanum expects the five-store center to be finished by Oct. 1. The other four stores, which have not yet been leased, range in size from 1,500 square feet to 8,000 square feet. Earlier this year, Vanum took out a permit for construction of Old Navy, top left, a project valued at $900,000.
