For over a decade, Jon Sockol has developed properties through his Westborough, Massachusetts-based Vivon Corporation. As President, Treasurer, Director, and Secretary for the real estate development and leasing company, Sockol oversees all its enterprises. In 2006, he filed site specifications with the City of Marlborough in order to create a retail and office building on Northboro Road. The public received an opportunity to review these plans, and after four months, the city and its planning board approved Jon Sockol’s proposal. However, an abandoned building stood in the location of Sockol’s new development, so he applied for and obtained a demolition permit. In 2008, the City of Marlborough granted him a Commercial New Permit that allowed him to commence work on the two-story, 46 x 74 ft. office building. The following year, Jon Sockol obtained a permanent Certificate of Occupancy, certifying its compliance with all applicable building codes and deeming it safe. Previously, Sockol was involved with the development of 5,760-square-foot, one-story building also located on Northboro Road in Marlborough.
