On a vacant industrial site at 2323 W. Elmore St., the veteran builder turned developer Frank Firmani is planning a new office/industrial building.
Through an LLC, he purchased the triangular, 11,475-square-foot property last December for $750,000. It is bounded by Elmore, an alley to the east and the BNSF Railway tracks to the west.
The size and scope of that flex-space/industrial/office building, to be called Gilman Place, are yet to be determined, says Firmani, "since I've already got another building underway."
That current three-story, 15,000-square-foot project, also designed by E. Cobb Architects, is at 2307 W. Elmore St., on a 7,000-square-lot acquired three years ago for $950,000. Firmani expects that project to be done by next May. The upper two floors will be offices, some with views of Salmon Bay and the ship canal. The ground floor will have 7,373 square feet of flexible office and industrial space.
Firmani is acting as his own general contractor on what is currently called the Elmore Building. The team includes Harriott Valentine Engineers, structural engineer; Pro-Staff Mechanical, mechanical design-build contractor; and Northstar Electrical, electrical design-build contractor.
Corey Sollom of Kidder Mathews will lease the space, though that effort hasn't yet begun.
