DOSWELL, VA-Diamond Hill Plywood Co. has leased 150,000 square feet of warehouse/distribution space at 17320 Washington Highway here, in a move that consolidates and expands its local operations. Stephanie Sanker and Clay Culbreth of GVA Advantis-Norfolk, represented the tenant. Dick Porter of Porter Realty represented the landlord–a Virginia-based investor which also partially occupies the building.

Culbreth tells GlobeSt.com that the tenant is consolidating operations from a Richmond facility and one in Chesapeake, where Diamond Hill leased at least 30,000 square feet. He says such moves are becoming more common now, especially among the building industries. “Folks in residential building and supplies–like plumbing, heating and cooling–are all” looking to maximize space at the lowest price right now, he says.

Porter tells GlobeSt.com that this part of the region will likely see further such consolidations, albeit perhaps not as substantive as the Diamond Hill lease. The tenant is sharing a rail spur at the facility with the owner, using it to target the Northern Virginia market, he says.

There is 70,000 to 75,000 square feet of space left to rent in the approximate 375,000-square-foot facility.
