To accomplish this, GlenStar will embark on a $10 million capital improvement campaign this winter. Planned improvements include renovating the common areas and restrooms; repaving the parking lots and driveways; adding new signage; enhancing landscaping; and reactivating the lakes, bridges and walking paths. GlenStar will also build a new amenity center that will feature food service as well as a tenant lounge, fitness center, conference center, and abundant outdoor amenity space.

In addition, construction on nine spec suites ranging in size from 2,000 to 10,000 square feet will commence immediately with completion expected in January 2016.
