Harbor will immediately begin renovations at the 80%-leased property. The planned project enhancements will focus on providing improved workplace wellness and the creation of other complementary on-site lifestyle amenities incorporated throughout the expansive outdoor courtyard. Interior improvement plans also include a new lobby, move-in ready suites, as well as restroom and corridor updates.
