Plemmons industrial Park


A landmark of Central Avenue with the monstrous basalt fountain. The mixed-use Industrial Business Park is a long-standing example of the variety of sizes these business parks can accommodate. It houses a variety of spaces from 121 sq/ft offices all the way to 10,000 sq/ft warehouses to support the rapidly industrializing the Kent Valley. So many local businesses got their first start at this location.

Plemmons Industrial Park continues to support businesses, from start-up entrepreneurs to more established companies needing ample warehouse space.

We Are A Family Business

The Founding of Plemmons Industries In 1965, a young Jim Plemmons was kicked out of his kitchen and tasked with finding an office for the newly founded Plemmons Industries. He set his sights on the Kent Area because of the central location and vast fields sandwiching the central drag. But much to his dismay, there were no places to lease! The young real estate entrepreneur knew immediately that he could not be the only small business needing a small space. Thus, South Central Four Business Park was born. The founding of Commercial Park was just the first of many real estate developments in the Greater Seattle Area. Oddly, construction was not where Jim fell in love with real estate.

As a young graduate of WSU, his athletic career of swimming was not going to pay the bills. He figured the quickest way to make a career would be to learn something that was commission-based, and a mortgage company was hiring. The mortgage company paid per account closed, which appealed to Jim, a natural competitor. Within one year, Jim was informed by his Director that his production exceeded his own production, and they recommended that he strike out on his own considering his success. This suggestion was the fire he needed to realize that working for someone else could hinder his growth. Becoming entrepreneurial was the only way. Leveraging his vast knowledge of the financial side of real estate, he concluded that the most profit was in building and leasing of single-family homes. Consequently, Plemmons Industries was founded as a Residential Construction Firm. Fast forward to the early 70's, and the firm's growth had created a need for a small office space. Back in the 70s, the term "small office space" wasn't exactly common in commercial real estate.
