Tesla Leases New Wareheouse Sites
Tesla continues to expand its real estate portfolio with a new lease on a massive warehouse in Marysville, Washington. The automaker has officially signed a lease for a 245,619 square foot building in the Cascade Industrial Center, which is still under construction. This marks Tesla’s second attempt to land a large warehouse in the state.
The industrial park, located 30 minutes north of Seattle, will be the first project completed at the site. The building sits on a 19.5 acre parcel with 3,600 feet of storefront, 36? clear height, and over 300 parking and trailer stalls. While the general contractor, Sierra Construction Company, has not named the tenant of the building, Biz Journals reports that Tesla plans to use the facility as a parts and assembly plant.
This warehouse lease in Marysville comes after Tesla’s recent lease of a 1 million square foot facility in Houston, Texas for cell production and parts storage and distribution. In addition, the automaker has signed a lease for a 440,000 square foot warehouse in San Antonio to store manufacturing components for Giga Texas and leased a 660,000 square foot warehouse in Illinois for the Gateway Tradeport development near St. Louis.
Tesla’s growth is not limited to the United States, as the company has secured two leases for upcoming Service Center locations in Canada. One lease, exceeding 60,000 square feet, is located in Hamilton, Ontario and the other, also exceeding 60,000 square feet, is in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
