Project Overviewx

Built in 1978 as the world headquarters for General Battery Corporation, one of the largest battery manufacturers in the world. Vacated by General Battery in 2003 as part of their bankruptcy restructuring, the building was purchased by Shuman Development Group and converted into one of Reading’s finest multi-tenant office buildings.
