Plans describe new warehouse, office buildings in Vancouver

Future home of Warner Roofing listed

By , Columbian business reporter

Two separate Vancouver commercial projects are planned — a downtown-area warehouse and two east Vancouver industrial office buildings — according to documents submitted recently to the city.

Vancouver-based Forney Contractors submitted plans for a project called Vancouver Warehouse, to be built on a vacant 3.95-acre lot off of West 19th Street, slightly north of Mill Plain Boulevard and directly east of the main rail line through downtown.

The project would consist of either a large concrete tilt-up warehouse or two smaller ones, according to documents submitted to the city, and would fully develop the site, including necessary utility and roadway improvements to provide heavy truck access.

A diagram of the proposed site shows a 40,000-square-foot building and another 10,000-square-foot building connected by an 84-space parking lot.

The application doesn’t specify potential tenants or what the warehouse would be used for, but the property owner is listed as W2W Stone Holdings LLC. State records list the LLC’s owner as Tyler Kruckenberg, which is also the name of the owner of Wall to Wall Stone Corp, a Vancouver-based granite and tile company that specializes in stone countertops.

The east Vancouver project — Creekside Plaza — would include two light-industrial office buildings on a pair of vacant lots with a shared parking lot, entrance driveway and storage yard on East 18th Street. The two lots total 1.94 acres.

The project would be phased, starting with the construction of the first building and a 42-stall parking lot. The second phase would add the other building and expand the parking lot to 63 spaces.

Warner Roofing will occupy most of the first building, with the remainder of the space available for a future small tenant, say documents filed with the city. Both buildings are planned to have office space and storage bays for vehicles and materials.

Warner Roofing is a Vancouver roofing company headquartered on Northeast 65th Avenue, a short distance from the project site. WRC Investment Group LLC, which is owned by Mike Warner, owns the site. Vancouver-based Robertson Engineering submitted the building application. Warner Roofing and Robertson Engineering representatives were unavailable for comment Tuesday.

Builders for both projects are scheduled to meet with city officials Nov. 15.
