$9 million warehouse planned at Spokane Valley site

Project site owned by same company that has old Itron headquarters

  • Print Article

The city of Spokane Valley has issued a building permit for a $9 million multitenant warehouse facility at 15909 E. Marietta, public records show.

The warehouse, under the project name SDS Valley Facility, would include 110,400 square feet of space, according to the building permit. SDS likely refers to SDS Realty Inc., a local real estate company that has shared ownership with the project owner, S&L Sullivan LLC.

SDS Realty is involved in industrial, land, mixed-use, multifamily, office, and retail properties, its website indicates.

A representative of Garco Construction Inc., the Spokane-based general contractor who is listed as the contractor on the project, referred the Journal to a representative for S&L Sullivan LLC, who declined to comment. 

 Permits indicate the project will cover three parcels totaling 7.6 acres on the northwest corner of Fire Lane and Marietta Avenue, about two blocks east of the Marietta-Sullivan Road intersection. Along with five other parcels, the site was purchased as vacant land by S&L Sullivan LLC for $5.5 million last November. 

No construction timeline is mentioned in the building permit. 

The warehouse site is adjacent to the former Itron Inc. headquarters at 2818 N. Sullivan Road, a property S&L Sullivan also owns. 

Spokane-based vacation rental company Stay Alfred plans to occupy 37,500 square feet of space in that facility. 

In December 2017, the Journal reported Stay Alfred planned to move its office this year. Stay Alfred CEO Jordan Allen declined to disclose a location at that time. Currently located at 123 E. Sprague downtown, a couple of blocks east of Division Street, Stay Alfred had 140 employees as of last December.

Additionally, Spokane-based online retailer etailz Inc., which employs more than 250 people, recently moved into its new 40,000-square-foot headquarters in the former Itron complex, which includes three main buildings ranging from 30,000 to 48,600 square feet.

Itron is now located in the former Telect Inc. headquarters building, at 2111 N. Molter Road in Liberty Lake.

Indoor and outdoor renovations for that project included the addition of natural and directional lighting features; hanging hammock chairs, bean bags, couches, and plants; open work spaces; themed meeting rooms; privacy phone booths; a yoga room; a fitness area; a barbecue patio; a volleyball court; and a basketball court. 

Etailz had outgrown its former headquarters at 850 E. Spokane Falls Blvd., which it had occupied for more than five years.
