Special Olympics had a deal for flex space on Kramer Lane abouta year ago, but it fell through, according to Jay Lamy of StaubachCo. Central Texas. He and Jon Aleshire, also of Staubach,negotiated on behalf of Special Olympics. The delay helped SpecialOlympics find class B space at a better rate, Aleshire says.
