Business owners looking to buy or lease space for storage, manufacturing, or distribution purposes might want to consider a new building in Tacoma’s Nalley Valley.

The one-story, 10,000-square-foot building, located at 1530 Center Street, is zoned for heavy industrial use and includes three grade-level doors, as well as offices and restroom facilities for staff, according to information provided by Kidder Mathews.

The building was constructed using cross-laminated timber manufactured by Structurlam Mass Timber Corporation, a Canadian company headquartered in Penticton, British Columbia.

“What makes it interesting is that my client (used) cross-laminated timber for the construction of the walls, which is a more sustainable ‘green’ option,” explained Kidder Mathews Vice President Brandon D. Gates. “I’m told this building is the first spec warehouse being constructed in the U.S. using this material.”

Locally, Structurlam’s strong, lightweight, and eco-friendly cross-laminated timber can be found in the Tukwila Library, the Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, and the Youth and Community Center in Auburn.

The Tacoma building, which can be leased for $15,000 per month or purchased for $2.9 million, is situated on just over one acre of land, of which approximately 36,000 square feet are comprised of a secured and fenced yard that could be used for storage or truck staging.
