Thank you for your interest in 240 Sparks Specialty Leasing Program.

The material enclosed will answer many of your questions regarding our Specialty Leasing Program at 240 Sparks.  Our Specialty Leasing Program is a wonderful opportunity for you to start a small business, expand or promote your existing business operation or to test the waters for the future as a permanent in-line tenant.

If you are just starting out, or if you are a small retailer who is looking for greater exposure, a Cart at 240 Sparks may be a great solution for you. They offer minimum overhead with a low start up cost in a highly successful location.  The carts have high visibility; they are attractive and offer you and your product exposure to over 3,500 Office Employees daily and 100,000 potential customers per week.

If you have an existing business and wish to temporarily expand your operation for greater exposure, our opportunities for carts, temporary kiosks, commercial displays, mall shows and in-line stores may be a very viable solution for you.

We are always looking for new and original concepts to join our team at 240 Sparks and we look forward to receiving your proposal
