Contractors work on a new addition to space at 107 Sixth St., soon to be home to the law office of Northfielder Jonathan Reppe. (Suzanne Rook/Northfield News)
When your conference room can't hold all your clients, it's time to expand -- and that's just what Northfield attorney Jonathan Reppe is doing.
Reppe, who now has offices at 502 Division St., plans to move to 107 Sixth St. once construction of a garage and renovations to the existing 1893 building are complete.
The site, which sits just behind Eco Gardens on Division, has been empty since it went into foreclosure in 2008. At 1,562 square feet it's nearly double the firm's current office space, but still downtown, where Reppe has been for about six years.
Reppe said he considered expanding into the adjacent space, but found it undo-able.
The new Reppe Law Office site not only gives the firm more space and a detached garage, on-street parking is available -- and there's an attractive garden space with a waterfall at the rear of the property.
Work at the Sixth Street site, Reppe said, should be complete in about two months, allowing the general practice law firm to open at its new home shortly after Labor Day.
As for his current offices, Reppe said he plans to lease the space.
"It's a nice location," he said taking a glance up Division Street.
