Construction has begun...

The first property that I ever bought has experienced another vacancy.  It's been roughly five years since the last one so it's been a pretty good run.  However, the tenant that moved out had been there since the mid '70s.  It's required a complete gut job and a new start.

However, we've got great tenant coming in.  The Professional Fire Fighters of Spokane County Fire District 9 & 10 is our new tenant!  I'll detail more about this in an upcoming post, but thought you might like to see some of the build-out as things move along.

It's taken us longer to get started on this project than expected.  We did the initial demo back in April.  You can check out the pictures further back in this blog.

Due to the market, timelines are very tight to get contractors in for bids and then to get them back to start the work.  My clients are experiencing this problem as well.

Anyway, we're excited to have the work underway.  Stay tuned for further updates...

A Little Touch Up Paint

As mentioned previously, Spokane Vitamin Supply moved out.  

The first thing we did was take down the old sign and touch up the building's paint. Unfortunately, we discovered that the previous sign's base was applied with liquid nails to our metal facade.  Removing it will severely damage the metal.

We're going to have to figure out a plan once we get a new tenant.

A New Vacancy, A New Opportunity

After nearly 40 years, Spokane Vitamin Supply moved out of our building at 1008 W. Rosewood.

The business had changed had several times, the most recently a few years ago.  The recent owners sold the business again and the new buyers have relocated it to their existing business in the Spokane Valley (neighboring city).

What this has left us with is a vacancy.  It's time to crank up the machine and start marketing the property.
