C.C. Edwards Construction has secured a 33,000 square foot space in Tehaleh, making it the first industrial tenant in the 4,700-acre planned development in the Bonney Lake area, according to a report from the Puget Sound Business Journal.
The new building is located at Tehaleh Boulevard East and Cascadia Boulevard East, set to be finished in June. It will be situated in the community’s 112-acre commerce center. The commerce center is one of four nearby parcels zoned for light industrial and is designated for retail, office and light industrial use. The incorporation of light industrial usage was a response to the growing demand for space, according to the report, as light industrial wasn’t part of the original commercial plans for Tehaleh.
“The demand for light industrial space remains strong and we are set to meet that need with zoning and established infrastructure at the new commerce center,” Scott Jones, senior vice president of operations for Brookfield Properties, told the Business Journal. “C.C. Edwards is the first of what we hope will be several announcements over the summer for companies moving to the center.”
Tehaleh’s other commercial centers include Tehaleh Business Park East and the upcoming Canyon View Village, an eight-acre site with retail shops, restaurants, health clinics and beauty salons. At present, Tehaleh has approximately 8,700 inhabitants, with additional residential expansion in the works. Tehaleh is a joint venture partnership between North America Sekisui House, LLC, and Brookfield Residential, managed by Brookfield Properties. Brookfield Residential purchased Newland Communities, Tehaleh’s original developer, in 2021.
C.C. Edwards Construction is a civil contractor that specializes in excavation and land development, mass grading excavation and underground utilities, according to the company’s website. The Sumner-based firm’s work covers both residential developments and commercial developments.
