The most recognizable building in downtown Wichita Falls has its first tenant that has signed a lease.

The leasing manager, Sean Kriger for the old First Wichita Building, or Big Blue, says he recently signed the Spanish radio station, KZAM, 98.7, to move in on the first floor. Kriger says he hopes to have a few more leases signed  by the end of the week.

The high cost of renovation and repairs forced the previous owner of Big Blue to close last August. The building was purchased by new owners in June, and they hope to bring it back to its former glory with office and retail space, including a restaurant on the first floor.
