Raised 155,000 square foot roof, enabling the new owner to transform an 80,000 square foot section of 14’ clear space into a 25’ high freezer/cooler/bakery, and to double the size of existing offices; in addition, another 75,000 square foot section was raised to enlarge the storage capacity of the new food preparation and storage/distribution facility, from 18’ high up to 32’ clear. The high-profile building further had its attraction increased by the addition of the largest commercial video sign in the U.S., installed above the raised roof.
