Mall seeks tenant
Mid-Valley Mall in Sunnyside is looking for a tenant to take over a corner property at Morgan Road and Yakima Valley Highway, which was recently purchased by the Carrington Company in Eureka, Calif., which owns the mall adjacent to the property.
Greg Meshke, manager of Mid Valley Mall, handled the purchase of the former Sunnyside Machine shop and the land on which it rested from Mel Curfman at an undisclosed price. The sale was final in July, but the agreement between the mall and Curfman allowed him to continue business at the site until fall of 2005.
"The purchase kind of flushes out that corner," said Meshke, who added that the mall had been negotiating for the property for some time.
"We'd prefer to do a build-to-suit and lease the building," said Meshke, adding "but we would consider a land lease or even a sale for the right tenant. It's a great location for a retail business."
