EVERETT, WA-Trader Publishing Company is relocating its Northwest division from West Seattle to 9,296 sf in Quadrant I-5 Corporate Park here. Quadrant declined to comment on the value of the 9,296-sf, five-year lease, but did say only 22,000-sf remain to be leased in the four-building, 239,000-sf complex. Quadrant, a Weyerhaeuser Company, has developed in excess of five million sf of commercial space in over 80 projects in the Puget Sound area.

Trader, the publisher of nine magazines including Auto Trader and Boat Trader, will move 75 employees, sales, production and distribution facilities to the business park at 723 134th St. SW in March 2001. Trader Publishing’s general manager Scott Spears says one of the reasons for the relocation from West Seattle was “a more favorable labor pool” in the north end.

Other key tenants at Quadrant I-5 are Premera Blue Cross, Reid Middleton, State Farm, American Cancer Society and Maple Systems. Brokers for the deal were Larry Blackett and Chris Moe of Kidder, Mathews & Segner for Quadrant, and Todd Battison of Trammell Crow for Trader Publishing.
