Designed with seven independent convertible rooms containing temperature ranges from -10 °F - 40°F, the 115,000 sf. warehouse allows for maximum flexibility. The 50’ clear ceilings give room for nine high pallet elevations and include Tippmann Innovation’s QF+ In-Rack Freezing system to ensure lower energy costs and greater efficiency in freeze times.

Sitting on prime distribution real-estate, the warehouse lies adjacent to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. For years, city officials debated on how to best develop the land. WDS wanted to take advantage of the site’s close proximity to the airport, but faced construction challenges because the land was slopped on both sides of the property.
