As President of Vivon Corporation for over a decade, Jon Sockol has successfully undertaken two construction projects on Northboro Road in Marlborough, Massachusetts. In July 2006, Jon Sockol initiated a proposal for construction of a retail/office building at 497 Northboro Road, submitting a site plan to the Office of the Building Inspector at Marlborough City Hall.
Mr. Sockol was issued an approved site plan permit for the work in November, and he received a demolition permit for the existing abandoned building in February 2007. The City of Marlborough issued a commercial building permit for a two-story office building in July 2008. The project proceeded as planned, with a permanent Certificate of Occupancy for the completion of the building issued in November 2009.
Today, the newly constructed building operates as a commercially zoned mixed-use retail/office space. The building is located in a commercial area, with the RK Plaza and numerous industrial and research and development centers in the vicinity. The building is set back from the road for maximum visibility and enjoys a high daily traffic count, near a traffic-lighted intersection. Jon Sockol continues to focus on property licensing and development opportunities with Vivon Corporation.
