Recently filed building permits and a SEPA application indicate that Seattle based Charlie's Produce is planning to build a new warehouse with cold storage capabilities on the West Plains. The structure will be 84,540 SF total with a 72,000 SF cold storage warehouse and 12,000 SF of office space, all to be built at 6505 W. 40th Ave., just west of Grove Rd. on the West Plains.
We reached out to Charlie's Produce, but they did not reply for comment / project info. However, details filed in public records show the new facility is to be completed on or about October of 2023 with upwards of 150 employees working at the site. The project is estimated to cost $16.8 million with Fisher Construction Group acting as the general contractor.
Charlie's Produce presently operates a warehouse on E. Ferry Ave. in Spokane, which we can assume will be relocated to the new facility following its completion. The company also presently operates other warehouses in Seattle, Portland, Boise, Salt Lake City, Anchorage and Los Angeles.
