The former Birds Eye Foods facility near downtown Tacoma has been sold to a local investor, according to commercial real estate brokerage firm Jones Lang LaSalle.
The 22-acre site, which was owned by Pinnacle Foods Group and is located near South Tacoma Way and South 35th Street, was most recently the production site for Nalley’s Chili and Brooks Beans. That changed in 2010 when Pinnacle Foods Group announced it would close its manufacturing operations in Tacoma and move to Fort Madison, Iowa, where it operates an Armour canned meat plant. Pinnacle Foods Group vacated the property in July 2011. The Nalley’s brand was founded in 1918 in Tacoma.
According to Jones Lang LaSalle officials, the site included 400,000 square feet of improvements. The property was sold to Puget Sound Industrial, LLC. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
