MCLEAN, Va., Oct. 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gladstone Commercial Corporation (NASDAQ:GOOD) (“Gladstone Commercial”) announced today that the tenant in its existing 170,000 square foot light industrial manufacturing facility in Vance, Alabama has exercised its expansion right. Gladstone Commercial will expand the property by 75,000 square feet for an estimated project cost of $7.0 million. Upon completion of the expansion, the tenant will enter into a new 225,000 square foot 10-year lease.
