2018 NAIOP Finalist for Industrial Development of the Year
What began from humble beginnings, the Classic Accessories story successfully exemplifies a strong commitment to their legacy through a new facility – for the company, to their employees, and in all the ways people interact with them. This 18,000 SF build-to-suit was worth the labor of love, because of the special, synergistic relationships between the Classic Accessories, CenterPoint Properties, Poe Construction, the City of Kent, and Craft Architects.
The building was designed on the laurels of established principles of a flourishing company, with special focus on the employees:
Open concept offices and the amount of conference rooms provide optimum collaboration and communication between teams and future growth
A dedicated Quality Control lab and Photo Studio builds stronger bonds between design and high quality product development
A very large, multi-purpose Break-room serves the entire office to enhance employee engagement activities creatively and comfortably
A unique, Interior Patio area is dedicated to created more opportunity for team building
Interior architecture and finishes were thoughtfully designed and specified to be fun and energetic, yet professional, in order to reflect the existing culture and sensibilities of Classic Accessories – beyond a typical warehouse office
