Powerscourt – Under New Management!

Powerscourt BuildingThe Thomas Duke Company is pleased to announce that we have added the Powerscourt building to our portfolio. With our ownership we bring our reputation for exceptional care of our properties and respectful attention to every tenant in them.

Tenants will begin to experience this care and attention immediately as we begin with a first floor renovation. We have all new finishes selected for baths and hallways. Carpets, wall coverings, ceiling tiles and light fixtures will all be new—and environmentally friendly.  This renovation on the first floor will give present and future tenants a picture of what to expect on the floors above.

We also plan to refurbish suite entries and each suite’s interior finishes—floor and wall coverings, ceiling treatments, doors and lighting—as the space is leased, built out, and /or renovated for lease renewals.  Common areas, including the elevator cabs and the parking garage, won’t be overlooked, either. When spring brings warmer weather, expect to see new sidewalks, improved parking areas and refreshed landscaping.

The brokerage community will find it easier to bring new tenants to the building and to negotiate leases. Our history of close cooperation and quick, no-nonsense deal making will help us fill the building and meet our lease-up projections. New tenants will be pleased with their broker’s advice to locate to Powerscourt.

Our investors are also excited about our plans and intentions for Powerscourt. As we better manage its annual expenses, the result will be better vendors, better care and a better bottom line. Its occupancy will increase, and our return on investment is sure to be satisfying. This is an exceptional property, one we are all going to be proud of.
