Reno, NV, 7/19/2016 - Colliers International announced today that the company has been chosen to market the subleasing of the Kmart Distribution Center located at 1402 South McCarran Boulevard in Sparks, NV. The 1,556,706 square foot distribution center was formerly occupied by Sears Holdings Corporation before becoming vacant. Chris Fairchild, CCIM and Greg Shutt, SIOR, both Vice Presidents of Industrial Services at Colliers, will be exclusively listing the property. Originally built by McKenzie Properties in 1970 for Kmart, the building is currently the second largest in the Northern Nevada area after its expansion in 1973. Situated on 54.19 acres, Sears Holdings controls the property with six, five-year options to lease the asset. Colliers Reno is listing the building with a lease rate of $0.15/sf/month modified gross for a full building user.

"The Kmart Distribution Center provides an industrial user a unique opportunity to cut their facility overhead by almost 65%," commented Fairchild. "Those kinds of savings on this size of a building should turn user's heads at a regional level."

Centrally located in Sparks, the property draws from all labor pools within the Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) and offers a convenient commute for employees due to its location along the public transportation line. Its location on South McCarran, less than a mile off Interstate 80, will be advantageous for many users. With its proximity to California and one-day drive time to five western states, coupled with Nevada's tax incentives and a low lease rate, the building should get attention from distribution, manufacturing, and storage users with West Coast requirements.

"The listing of the Kmart Distribution Center is an amazing accomplishment that demonstrates the exemplary talents of the industrial team at Colliers," said Melissa Molyneaux, a Senior Vice President and Executive Managing Director with Colliers. "Having one of the largest listings in the state is just another testament to our broker's unparalleled work ethic and dedication to the client."
