Opus Begins Construction of Technical Glass HQ

Opus Northwest of Seattle has begun construction of a build-to-suit corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility totaling 130,000 square feet for Technical Glass Products.

The project is on Snoqualmie Parkway in the 89-acre Snoqualmie Ridge Business Park, located just off Interstate 90. The building will contain approximately 97,000 square feet of state-of-the-art manufacturing space and 33,000 square feet of office space.

Technical Glass will own the building, joining Phillips Oral Healthcare, Nuprecon, T-Mobile, Zetec, and the Inception Group at Snoqualmie Ridge Business Park, one of the few places that could house both the headquarters and manufacturing plant in a single location, Opus Northwest said.

"Technical Glass Products has been located on the Eastside for years, and Snoqualmie Ridge provides a great opportunity for us to bring all of our operations into one place," Mike Moroney, COO of Technical Glass, said in a statement. "It's a convenient location for integrating our administration, sales and manufacturing, and it provides plenty of room to grow as our company expands."

Leo Backer and Eric Postle of Washington Partners handled the deal for Technical Glass.

Opus Northwest is also building the Kendall Lake Building, a 59,000-square-foot speculative flex facility, in the business park. The developer hopes to attract companies looking to escape high rents in Bellevue and the I-90 Corridor.

"Snoqualmie Ridge Business Park offers a logical solution for businesses searching for cost-effective locations because of its easy access to I-90 and new residential neighborhoods," said Mike Ruhl, Opus Northwest's vice president of real estate.
