Once complete the new Douglass Legacy Park industrial development on the West Plains will offer over 1.5 million square feet of new class A warehouse space. From Ecommerce to Aerospace and pretty much everything in between this development stands to be a game changer for Spokane County.
Several buildings for the park are already rising on the 127 acre site along S. Thomas Mallon Rd just south of the Spokane International Airport. Most of those are still under construction or empty but recently we've learned of the first company that will be moving into space at the development. That company is one of the largest and most well known shipping companies in world, UPS.
UPS will lease 96,000 square feet of space taking over all of "Building 15" at 9210 W. Harlan Ln. . The new West Plains UPS distribution center will be the fourth center covering sections of the Spokane / Coeur d'Alene area as original UPS centers exist on N. Bradley Rd. in Spokane Valley and N. Ramsey Rd in Coeur d'Alene. Additionally, UPS just opened a new 41,000 square foot distribution center in 2020 at 192 N. Beck Rd in Post Falls.
A recent article about the new West Plains UPS center in the Spokane Journal of Business ( that article here - may have a paywall ) indicated that the new facility will open by the end of the year and will also feature a customer service center, primarily for dropping off and picking up packages.
And, it looks like we might have more announcements coming from the Douglass Legacy Park project in the near future as the project's official website indicates that a portion of building 14 is also leased.
