Ridgefield Industrial Center Fully Leased Upon Completion of Construction

May 1, 2023

The Ridgefield Industrial Center, a 468,810 square foot industrial facility located in Ridgefield, WA recently achieved full occupancy. This notable milestone marks the successful lease up of a project launched in August 2021.

Ridgefield Industrial Center was developed in a joint venture between RREEF/DWS and Specht Development, Inc. This successful partnership resulted in the construction of a single 36’ clear concrete tilt-up industrial building, delivered on time and under budget. The tenant makeup and swift leasing of this project reinforce the need for additional high-quality industrial space in the Portland/SW Washington market.

The project welcomed its first tenant, Child Logistics, Inc., in January 2023, followed by Ross Dress for Less, Inc., and Safeway, Inc. in May 2023, achieving full occupancy well ahead of schedule. The project, located on what may be the last site in the City of Ridgefield to allow for large distribution uses, was designed to maximize building coverage without the need to disturb the adjacent wetlands.

The project team would like to express its gratitude for professional brokerage efforts of Capacity Commercial Group and the representation of Ross Dress for Less, Inc. by Andy Kangas at CBRE, as well as Kevin Kriesien and Zach Niles’ representation of Safeway, Inc. “This project demonstrates our commitment to creating high-quality, strategically located industrial buildings. We are proud of this achievement and look forward to replicating this success in future projects” Greg Specht, President of Specht Development, Inc., added.
