Freezer Facility to Satisfy Need for Cold Storage in Seattle
A convertible refrigerated/freezer warehouse, which will house 41,000 pallets, will operate at a range of temperatures to accommodate products from fresh perishables to frozen foods. The new facility opened near Seattle’s Sea-Tac Airport.
Western Distribution Services (WDS) of Burien, Wash., along with Kidder Mathews (KM) of Seattle, Bridge Development Partners (BDP) of Chicago, and Tippmann Innovation (TI) of Fort Wayne, Ind., worked together to create the facility to serve the rising need for cold storage in the Seattle area.
WDS will operate the 241,140 ft2 facility, which was designed and constructed by TI. BDP served as developer. The warehouse was built on a 15-acre site in close proximity to the airport.
