Page 12 - February 7-20, 2024 Industrial by Avalon Jacka COMMERCE CITY – An 80,345-square-foot industrial building has traded hands for $12.2 million. Intermountain Electron- ics Inc. purchased the property 6195 Clermont St. from Brennan Investment Group in January. The property was vacant at the time of sale. Kirk Vanino and Matt Nora of Lee & Associ- ates – Denver r e p r e s e n t e d the buyer, and CBRE repre- sented the seller in the transac- tion. Vanino had represent- ed Brennan when it bought the property in 2022 for $8.62 million. “This sale shows that these compa- nies that are healthy and have a lot of business are growing in the Denver metro area, especially manufacturing clients,” Vanino said. Built in 1994, the building fea- tures outside storage and I-3 zon- ing, which attracted the buyer to the property, Vanino said. Inter- mountain will perform concrete work and add cranes to the build- ing, as well as generally freshen up the building. Intermountain will relocate its current operations from 8221 E. 96th Ave. in Henderson to the new space. The company owns the real estate for its locations in other markets, so the Clermont property offered an opportunity to operate out of a more func- tional building as an owner-user, Vanino noted.
