It didn't take long for a 120,000-square-foot office building in Ayrsley to get leased up — in fact, window-and-door manufacturer Jeld-Wen inked a deal late last year to take 100% of the building for its new headquarters after being marketed for only four months.

A year ago, there was a fish store, salon and dirt in the heart of Ayrsley. Now it’s becoming — dare I say it? — downright cool.
