Northlake Way, a four-story, multi-tenant, creative office/industrial building and single-story warehouse building. Both buildings sit on 1.93 acres of prime land with water and city views.
The property currently is 100 percent leased to high-quality tenants, comprising a diversified rent roll, which spans multiple industries ranging from manufacturing, software, and industrial marine related uses.
