Pasco’s status as one of the state’s fastest growing cities in the state and a forecast for continued growth prompted a Yakima-based developer to create a 13.5-acre retail center off Road 68.
The single-story Sandifur Crossing at 5710 N. Road 68 features four units, leased by Dollar Tree, Planet Fitness, Grocery Outlet and one to be announced at a later date.
Construction on the first of four phases was recently completed.
Construction began in October 2017.
There are plans for five future retail/restaurant lots along Road 68, as well as two pads along Sandifur ideally suited for quick-serve restaurants, in addition to several small shop retail spaces. The goal is to mix national and local tenants on the property.
Dollar Tree opened for business June 14. Grocery Outlet and Planet Fitness are expected to open soon.
Grocery Outlet has announced a grand opening for 9 a.m. Aug. 30. The Grimm family of Franklin County are the owners and operators of the Pasco store.
The $30 million Sandifur project cost includes $3.5 million for the land.
Rent prices are $18 to $35 per square foot. Chad Carper of KiemleHagood in Spokane is the broker.
Hogback Development Co., a privately-held diversified commercial real estate acquisition and development firm, oversaw the project.
Incorporated in 2012, Hogback officials say they take pride in building and restoring areas in the Northwest, helping to create new jobs, new facilities and working with local businesses.
Overseeing the project is Chris Waddle, lead developer and co-owner of Hogback, who is responsible for acquisitions, leasing, tenant relations, entitlement and project management.
Project manager is Benjy Stephens, director of construction and co-owner of Hogback, as well as owner of the commercial general construction company Stephens & Sons.
Poston Architects of Yakima designed the building.
