Planned renovations will include improved exterior aes- thetics, roof replacement and repairs, lighting and signage upgrades, interior demolition, minor building system repairs and enhancements to dock doors/equipment. Leasing and renovation activity at Victory has already commenced. The property is presently over 70% leased, but suites from 9,000 to 60,000 s/f are still available. The building was originally constructed in 1962 as a gro- cery distribution warehouse by the S.M. Flickinger Company.
