Brightpath Capital Corporation will move into the second and third floors of the building while it hopes to add a restaurant or retail tenant on the first floor and in the basement.

The building has been headquarters for K-W Oktoberfest for since 1989. The organization will now move to the old MO building at 2 King St. W.
