Lee Contracting Acquires 235,963 SF Former Printing Facility in Walker, Michigan
WALKER, MICH. — Lee Contracting has acquired the former Grand Rapids Press printing plant campus at 3100 Walker Ridge Drive in Walker, a suburb of Grand Rapids. The industrial contractor plans to open a new satellite office at the facility. This will be Lee’s first location outside of Pontiac, where the company is headquartered. The Grand Rapids office will start by offering electrical and mechanical services, with rigging and machinery moving and concrete machine foundations to follow.
The 235,963-square-foot warehouse includes a 40,000-square-foot office space. The facility closed last year after MLive Media Group announced it would transfer production of eight of its newspapers to Cleveland. Bob Horn of JLL represented Lee in the purchase. MLive sold the facility for $9.7 million, according to local media reports.
