Reliable, Adaptable Retail Opportunities
A top choice among buyers with retail or commercial interests, premanufactured steel buildings are perfect for areas with extensive building or zoning requirements in place, as they can be easily customizable to accommodate such requirements. Prefabricated metal buildings are also typically fully customizable in terms of interior features and exterior aesthetics, so buyers can design theirs in accordance with their specific needs.
This particular steel building serves as a key resource for the community, and a number of different businesses have set up shop on the property since its erection. Situated east of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Lynchburg is an independent city located along the banks of the James River. Neighboring communities include Charlottesville, Danville and Roanoke.
Comprised of rugged, high-end steel parts, the premanufactured retail center stands 70’x200’x12.8’/15’ in size, and it features a hardwearing, single-sloped Galvalume roof overhead with a 0.5:12 pitch. Divided into seven separate retail units, the building delivers unmatched strength and durability, and it features an attractive brick and stucco veneer that enhances curb appeal and helps draw visitors from the street.
The metal retail building also boasts several accommodations made in consideration of local building codes and climate patterns. Such features include a 90-mph wind speed rating and a 20-pound snow load. Rugged, low maintenance and designed to withstand damage caused by severe weather, extreme temperatures, wear and tear and fire, the steel commercial building is highly adaptable, ensuring it can accommodate tenants with a wide range of retail needs.
