Phase 1 is now sold out at Conwest’s premium industrial strata project
Benchmark, at 3231 and 3239 No. 6 Road in Richmond’s most popular business district is Conwest’s newest industrial development. With its two-building design, Benchmark provides businesses with the opportunity to own a large distribution space with both dock and grade loading, or smaller flex warehouse units with professionally designed and finished second floor offices. Totalling 250,000 square feet, the business park offers units ranging from 3,880 SF up to 14,993 SF with the option to combine.
“Our goal with Benchmark is to deliver premium industrial space with outstanding features to meet the needs of diverse, local businesses and serve a community seeking a modern upgrade,” commented Tony Marinelli, Conwest Principal.
The project has garnered significant interest among distribution businesses and local food operations, including Kavuus Furniture who are planning to use their new space for showroom, storage, and the distribution of their furniture products. “A good industrial space was difficult to find; however, Benchmark had many features that we could not pass up. The location, layout and design were exactly what we were looking for,” said Stella Lee, Partner, Kavuus Furniture.
Fresh Plus Produce plans to use their space for cold storage and the distribution of produce to local grocery stores and restaurants across Metro Vancouver: “Benchmark was the ideal pre-sale for us because of its prime location. The listing agents were very professional and provided all the market information we needed to make the right decision for our business.” With construction well underway and occupancy scheduled for Q2 2022, Phase 1 is completely sold out and Phase 2 is almost fully committed with only two units remaining – one in each building.
Colliers’ Associate Vice President, Industrial, Sean Bagan, attributed the success to Conwest’s professional design, quality features and the central North Richmond location. “Businesses have chosen to invest in their future at Benchmark because of the ideal building design and layout. Situated in the epicentre of Richmond, occupiers want to own a piece of this unbeatable location for their future growth and expansion,” he stated.
