PORTLAND-Motosport Inc., a Eugene, OR-based online retailer of parts and accessories for motorcycles and ATVs is moving its operations to the area. The company has leased a 96,600-sf warehouse-distribution building at Southshore Corporate Park in outer Northeast Portland and is seeking a headquarters location in the Interstate 205 corridor.

Local broker Jeff Brooks, who is representing Motosport in its relocation, tells GlobeSt.com the industrial building has about 8,500 sf of office space that will be used as a call center. The company is leasing 3,500 sf on Kruse Way from Equity Office Properties on a short-term basis while it seeks a permanent headquarters location of closer to 7,000 sf, he says.

“They have been very steadily and rapidly growing over the last five- to seven years and have really outgrown the Eugene market, both from a building and an employment standpoint as well as an investor support standpoint,” says Brooks, who recently moved from Colliers International to GVA Kidder Mathews.

The Southshore industrial building is owned by Pro Logis Trust. The term of the lease is three years and includes renewal options. The blended net lease rate is believed to be around $0.40 per sf per month. Pro Logis was represented by Kidder Mathews brokers TomTalbot, Tony Reser and Sean McCarthy. Neither Talbot nor Reser could be reached for comment.

In November, LaCrosse Footwear signed a lease that will move its operations from a 55,000-sf building at the east end of the park to a 145,000-sf building under construction at the west end of the park. In so doing, it will move from the City of Gresham into the City of Portland. The move into the City of Portland will net the company about $750,000 in grants and forgivable loans related to the city’s Quality Jobs economic development program.

Southshore Corporate Park was developed by San Francisco-based Catellus Development Corp., which was acquired by Denver-based ProLogis in a $5.5-billion transaction that closed in September. According to officspace.com, very little built space remains available for lease in the 230-acre park and there are only a few parcels available for development. The LaCrosse lease soaked up 7.9 acres, leaving 27 acres, or about 10% of the park, left to be developed.
