LocationCold Storage, Seattle
In an exciting and emotional ribbon cutting ceremony for Chicago-based Bridge Development Partners on its brand new 241,000 square foot cold storage warehouse facility in Burien, Western Distribution Services President John Naylor spoke to a crowd of city officials from the Port of Seattle, City of Burien, Burien city council members, vendors and customers to express his excitement for this project.
“On behalf of WDS, it’s customers, vendors and everyone else here, thank you. It’s a big deal for me,” Naylor said as he choked up. “I get very emotional about this kind of stuff. I’ve dreamt about this for probably 30 years and to me, it’s a dream come true to stand up here in front of all of you and see this happening it’s just beyond my wildest imaginations but it’s something that without all of you, it would not have happened.”
Renton-based Western Distribution Services fully leased the warehouse building, which will be the largest in the company’s portfolio.
