Stanley Black & Decker will be the inaugural tenant of renovated office space in downtown Towson.
The Connecticut-based company, which also has a headquarters for its power tools division on East Joppa Road in Towson, signed a lease last week for its newest space in the 210 Allegheny Avenue building.
The 6,600-square-foot space will be used as the headquarters of Stanley Engineered Fastening, according to spokesman Tim Perra.
Stanley Engineered Fastening is a division of Stanley Black & Decker that develops fasteners to resolve assembly issues for the automotive and other industries.
The company will occupy the entire top floor of the building with plans to move into the new location around April, according to Chesapeake Real Estate Group vice president Christopher Murray.
“They’re a great first tenant,” Murray said. “We really wanted them in the building. The name resonates with a lot of people.”
Renovations include updates to the exterior of the building such as new silver windows and a new, more modern flat coating to replace dated brick, as well as a new roof, Murray said. Bathroom and common areas also have been renovated and new flooring and exterior signage was added to the property.
Other updates include a new cooling tower and updated landscaping, including knockout roses, crepe myrtles and perennials set to bloom in the spring.
