A Familiar Part of the Scenery Along Interstate 81 Will Soon Be Razed
A familiar part of the scenery along Interstate 81 will soon be razed. In late February 2018, Kirkwood Warehouse Investors, LLC, an affiliate of Equilibrium Equities Inc. of Blue Bell, PA commenced demolition of a 90’ tall 62,000 square foot appendage to their Triumph Business Center at One Grosset Drive in the Town of Kirkwood, Broome County, NY. Triumph Business Center is the former Penguin Random House Books distribution center that is highly visible from Interstate 81 and sold to the present owners in May 2015. Since that time, the new owners have sold off personal property and removed racking left by Penguin and converted the property into a multi-tenant building. Improvements since the sale have included a new painting and graphics scheme, lighting and signage upgrades, minor building system repair and a highly visible monument sign along Route 11. Tenants at Triumph Business Center now include Shop-Vac, Rogers Logistics and Max Finkelstein Tires.
