The Wendova Building is ideally situated at the corner of Ash and Broadmore Avenues, with easy access from both these busy streets, and close to a major shopping mall and commercial strip.
The Wendova Building contains 1420 square feet of interior space that can be easily remodeled for Florida Secure Credit Union’s use. At the rear of the building are two drive-up facilities, originally installed by the small bank that built the Wendova Building. Only one drive-up window was utilized by the most recent tenant for prescription deliveries, but both drive-up facilities can be easily renovated for credit union transactions. The parking lot that accompanies the Wendova Building contains spaces for 20 compact vehicles, eight oversize vehicles, and two handicapped parking spaces.

The Wendova Building has been occupied by clients since its construction in 1978.
Its HVAC and electrical systems have been updated several times.
The building contains a forced air furnace that is rarely used most of the year. Most electrical usage is for air conditioning, lighting, and computer usage. Electrical bills for the last year ranged from a low of $590 in March to $1530 in August.
Bills for water during the last year varied little from month to month, averaging $425 per month. The Wendova Building pays the standard rate for a footprint building of its size with two bathrooms. The Wendova Building is wired for telephone and high-speed cable services.

Maintenance Tasks Schedule

Fulfill lighting & electrical needs. The Wendova Building currently contains a large number of electrical outlets in the floors and ceilings as well as in the exterior walls.
Cmax Commercial Real Estate believes these can be easily modified, added to, or moved to meet Florida Secure Credit Union’s needs. The main panel currently has three unused slots. In the event that many additional electrical circuits are needed, the main electrical panel may require upgrading.
Establish a secure bank vault. As the Wendova Building is built on a thick concrete slab instead of a raised foundation, the weight of a new bank vault should be no problem. The previous tenant had a vault in the windowless northwest corner of the building. Exterior walls are thick concrete that provide adequate security.
Introduce state of the art security system. The Wendova Building was previously used as a bank, it contains the wiring for a security system that monitors all windows and doors. However, as security systems have advanced since the building was last used, Florida Secure Credit Union will want to install a state-of-the-art system for their protection.

However, if desired, Cmax Commercial Real Estate can arrange and oversee remodeling to Florida Secure Credit Union’s specifications.
