For about 10 years, a two-story brick cube at the foot of the 805 Broadway building in downtown Vancouver has been vacant. But a newly completed renovation has transformed it into an open space with natural light entering from large windows on three of the four walls.

It’s now for rent. No tenant is secured for the 13,460-square-foot space, but three businesses are considering moving into the spot, said Tamara Fuller, vice president of Colliers International, the leasing agent for the building. The interior is still in its bare form, with wooden railings and unfinished walls, and it is ready for a tenant to customize the space.

“It’s going to be a great addition for downtown,” Fuller said.

The price of the new spot depends on how the tenant wants to build out the space, but the range is around $27 to $30 per square foot per year, equivalent full service, Fuller said. Tenants would have the ability to build walls, a kitchen, or whatever their business needs.

All of the three companies interested in leasing the space are office-based businesses, and none are retail, according to Fuller. Two are local, and one is from outside the area. Fuller said she is open to having more potential tenants inquire about the space, including retail businesses.

“You have to be patient with a space like this,” Fuller said. “We want someone who won’t turn over so we can keep it open. It could be creative offices or a co-working space.”

Part of the renovation includes a new entrance, located on the southwest corner of the building. The interior has 30-foot-tall ceilings over most of the available floor space.

The tenants won’t have access to the parking garage, so there is only on-street parking or spots at separate lots available, Fuller said.

The renovated part of the building once housed a Chinese restaurant, and most recently was home to the Princeton Athletic Club, which closed about 10 years ago, Fuller said. The spot has been vacant since, and the new renovation began in November.

Schlesinger Co., owner of the building, hired Vancouver-based LSW Architects, Wilsonville-based Walen Construction and Grummel Engineering for the redesign.

The 10-story building, built in 1982 and originally named for Seafirst Bank, today is home to ZoomInfo. It earned a LEED Certification in 2015.
