Finally, a neighbor for the Urban Garden Center on Sabattus Street: Air Time Cellular is moving in.

CBRE/The Boulos Co. announced the new lease this week for 2,322 square feet at the former Movie Gallery space. It was handled by Boulos’ Chris Paszyc.

Air Time Cellular’s quarters are at 884 Lisbon St.

“We’re shutting this place down and moving into a bigger, better building,” store manager Nick Waddell said.

The shop, part of a family-owned business with a second location in Gardiner, has two dedicated employees. He’s looking to hire a few more.

Offerings will stay the same and staff will repair iPhones on-site. The new store opens July 6.

The sharks are coming! The sharks are coming!

Got a business idea with bite? ABC’s “Shark Tank” is holding an open casting call on July 29 at the Italian Heritage Center in Portland. The first 500 people are guaranteed a spot to pitch to the casting team.

Bring a stellar idea, a finely-honed 1-minute pitch and a 16-page application that details any criminal record, accolades and sales projections.

Good luck!

The kudos are coming! The kudos are coming!

Late last month, the Maine Real Estate & Development Association recognized the new Hampton Inn in Lewiston and Brookside Village in Farmington as two of the “Top 7 Most Notable Projects of 2014.”

Chris Thompson and Shari Young accepted the award for the Hampton Inn, which was developed by Parallax Partners, and Buzz Davis and Bill Marceau accepted for Brookside Village, which was developed by Farmington Land, according to MEREDA.

Those top seven were picked for criteria that included economic impact, environmental sustainability and job creation.
