When it comes to industrial space, Spokane Valley offers both move-in ready and built-to-suit spaces. The city is pleased to provide a list of industrial properties for lease.
Existing Industrial Areas & Business Parks
Spokane Valley Northeast Industrial Area
The northeast industrial area in the City of Spokane Valley has nearly 500 acres of shovel-ready industrial property primed for development. The area is served by water, sewer and other utilities, thanks in part to a multi-year collaboration between the city, Spokane County, utility providers and private landowners to develop the area.
The area is also supported by a robust transportation network with nearby, easy access to State Highway 290 and Interstate 90. The acreage is adjacent to both BNSF Railway and Union Pacific railroad mainlines and includes a Union Pacific spur.
The city completed the environmental analysis for all 500 acres in the industrial area in March 2019. As a result, commercial or industrial projects that qualify are not subject to additional review under the State Environmental Policy Act. Interested to see if your project might qualify?

Here are some significant developments in the northeast industrial area:
- Amazon operates a fulfillment distribution center in the area. The 1.3 million-square-foot center opened in fall 2021 and will employ over 1,000 workers at full capacity.
- Mercer Mass Timber operates a 250,000-square-foot cross-laminated timber manufacturing plant in the industrial area. The facility was constructed in 2018 by Katerra, a global company that filed for bankruptcy in June 2021. Mercer acquired the factory in August 2021.

The park is one of the largest in the country, with a total of 5 million square feet and leaseable spaces ranging from 1,200 to 120,000 square feet.

Crown West announced plans in June 2019 for a multi-building project located near the corner of Fifth Street and Euclid Avenue within The Park. Plans called for the construction of four to five buildings, approximately 500,000 square feet in total, which would transform the southeast corner of The Park into a state-of-the-art distribution and logistics center to be known as the Euclid Logistics Center. Phase one of the project kicked off in fall 2019 and has been fully leased. Due to its success, Crown West has announced it will commence construction of Phase II in late September 2020. Both buildings are 120,000-square-foot, concrete-tilt, featuring 36-foot clear heights, cross-dock capacity, 135-foot truck courts and built to LEED standards.
