One of the calls we received while marketing a warehouse was from the sign on the building. The caller asked if the property had any freezer space. We responded that it had about 2,000 square feet of space. What the client really needed was 60-70,000 square feet of minus 10 degree space. We asked for his phone number and 48 hours. At the end of that time period we knew everything available between Everett and Olympia. We placed the client in the old Safeway facility in Bellevue in 65,000 square feet.
The client had an existing facility for production which they own and the new location was for warehousing and distribution. The Bellevue site is under major redevelopment and the leased space is under a one year cancellation provision. The alternative for the client was to find another space for to replace this site or to find a new location to create an integrated facility of 100,000 square feet or more. We have presented a site for their consideration which would meet this requirement. As part of the package we look forward to marketing their existing property.
