The Can Company in Canton is getting a face-lift that will include new lights, seating, signs and a park area, according to owner MCB Real Estate and leasing company KLNB.
Baltimore-based MCB and New York-based Angelo, Gordon & Co. bought the three-building, 205,865-square-foot former industrial property last year for nearly $43 million.
The owners said they see the Boston Street property, which dates to 1901, as a community asset and want to make it a place for residents to congregate, as well continuing as an office and retail hub for the Canton community.
“From the outset, we knew we wanted to create a stronger sense of place and make it a more welcoming destination for the community to work, eat, drink, shop, relax and socialize,” said P. David Bramble, MCB’s managing partner.
The owners did not disclose how much they planned to spend on the refresh, for which ASD|SKY will do the design work.
The offices at the Can Company complex, where about 400 people work, are anchored by the headquarters for caulk and sealant maker DAP Products Inc. and offices for Oath Inc., Verizon’s digital advertising unit. Retailers include Nalley Fresh and T-Mobile. Much of the property is leased, with seven smaller spaces available, including the former Langermann’s restaurant space.
