Construction is underway on the new Kresky Professional Plaza in Chehalis.

The building will house Medical Massage and Acupuncture and Summit Chiropractic Center.

The plaza — being built on Kresky Avenue across from the Pacific Cataract and Laser Institute in Chehalis — will be completed by May 2014.

Kim Wilson, the owner of Medical Massage and Acupuncture, said she is looking forward to moving her business from the Providence Medical Plaza in Centralia to the new, larger location.

“We will have about three times as much space,” Kim Wilson said. “We have really outgrown our space and we are really excited to move.”

Aaron Wilson, Kim Wilson’s husband who works as a chiropractor in Centralia, will open up his new business Summit Chiropractic Center next to his wife’s business in the new plaza.

Both signed a 10-year lease with the private property owner to rent the space.

The 8,000-square-foot plaza still has room for another business to lease.

“We are curious to see who will take the third suite,” Kim Wilson said. “We are hoping it will be medical related.”

With a growing business, Kim Wilson said, she and her husband began looking for property around the area and decided on the Kresky lot because it is outside the floodplain and visible to daily traffic.

“I opened my business in 2000 and started just by myself and now we have seven massage therapists and three acupuncturists,” she said. “The demand was so great, I couldn’t meet the need.”

Kugel Construction, Chehalis, is the contracting crew for the plaza. Crews began pouring the cement base this week and plan to start framing the plaza by next week.

“In the middle of next week, people will start to see walls go up,” Owner Adam Kugel said.

Framing work will take between six to eight weeks to complete.

“It’s nice to see in the last few years some of these areas set up for development starting to develop,” Kugel said.

Bob Balmelli, of RB Engineering, Chehalis, is the civil engineer for the project.

Kim Wilson said having the larger space will allow her to expand acupuncture services in Lewis County.

“We are just pumped to bring more acupuncture to the area,” Kim Wilson said. “There has never really been an acupuncture entity that has stayed for a while. Acupuncture is here to stay we are excited to treat people’s pain.”
