We have definitely noticed a marked improvement in the management and appearance of Ship Canal House since HIMOR took over in early 2011, as befitting such a high profile historic building. Any issues are dealt with in a friendly, efficient and professional manner, and we look forward to proposed further improvements coming to fruition, as part of the new regime of pro-active planning and development.
